Everyone enjoyed this! I added some butter and a little chicken stock for flavor and moisture. I'm also thinking it would be enhanced with toasted almonds added. It's a nice, lighter dinner that goes well with crunchy bread. Thanks for a new and different entree idea!

Super good it sounds good and it is a lot better then that. I brazed boneless chicken breast in a little wine and spices When the chicken was almost done I added the vegtables. I really liked the taste and texture of the Orzo.
