From Cooking Light. I haven't tried it yet myself, but it got good reviews on the CL website!

Top Review by Brittta

I'm giving this 4 stars ONLY because it lacked a little deeper flavor than I like. I doctored it up a bit with sauteed onions and garlic, zucchini and spinach. Seasoned it with oregano, salt, cracked pepper and squeezed the juice of one lemon just before serving to pep it up a little. I give this 5 stars for prep. I never would have thought to do chicken and orzo at the same time in the same pan. What a breeze!! So many variations can be used with this prep.
