Terrific recipe! One-pan easy and delicious. I used some yellow onion instead of the shallots. Served with some roasted cherry tomatoes and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!

Yummy! I've made this several times now! Easy, great flavor and adaptable to personal tastes. I tend to add in sliced zucchini or other veggies in the last 5 min. A must try! thank you for the recipe!

I really loved this take on paella. We used the tiny salad shrimp and they were perfect. Thanks for posting.

this is a great recipe! loved the subtle flavours! didnt have prawns, so just did the chicken, and I added more water to the mix, as I found the risoni a little too "al dente"
have actually made this as a "special" for the tuck shop this week, added a few mushrooms and used the meat from some drumsticks, tastes great! keeper for me Pat :) made for Aussie swap, July 2012

This was indeed a delicious meal. It is pretty rich and heavy, so know that. Otherwise, the flavor was great and it didn't take alot to fill me up.

I made this without the prawns (didn't have any) but it was still really delicious! I had all the other ingredients on hand. The flavors are really nice together. Thanks!

*Made for Australia/NZ Swap #28* Hoped this was truly 4 sevings and there would be leftovers -- not sure now !! A really lovely combo of ingredients, with what you normally have in the pantry. Served with a green salad and cheese muffins from this month's Bon Appetite. Thanks for posting, I'mPat.

Wow, did we love this! I served this for our Friday evening supper. This was so easy to put together, and so great tasting, we only have about 1/2 serving left :) I did follow this recipe very closely, the only change i made was I didn't have sesame oil, so earlier in the day, I put sesame seeds (1/4 tsp. ground quickly) in 3 tablespoons canola oil. And the other small change was microwaving shrimp with shells on in some "Old Bay" Seasoning & butter for 1 minute 20 seconds, and then threw them (with shells still on) into the finished product to cook for 1 more minute. Oh boy, I love orzo, chicken, and prawns! This is just a delightful combo, without all the hours standing over the paella pan. Will make this every month at least, oh boy! I might even add a bit of saffron next time. But it surely doesn't need any changes. Made for *I Recommend* April 2009

Wonderful recipe Pat, I love orzo and this was a great combination. The only thing I did differently was to cook the prawns separately, since my daughters were eating at home and they don't care for prawns, I just sauteed them gently in some butter and garlic, and added them to mine and DHs plates! But I will make this again just for us, just as directed! Mmm, really really good! Thanks Pat! Made for Aussie recipe swap#24
