    I did olive oil instead of cooking spray, salted and lemon peppered the chicken before pan frying it, doubled the wine, used shallot instead of onion, added sliced mushrooms and spinach that I needed to use, and covered it. Only had to bake it for about 45 minutes. It would have been absolutely bone dry after an hour. It was very tasty and no-nonsense!

    Thinking an hour and 10 minutes would dry the boneless chicken to cardboard? How about stove top simmer for 15 minutes?? Just enough to cook the orzo, and boneless breasts.

    Very easy to make. There wasn't anything offensive in the recipe, we just found it to be bland; I had even added extra salt, boullion granules, garlic powder, and replaced the water with more chicken stock. My main problem was with the recipe directions, step 5 says to brown meat-side down, but the ingredient list calls for boneless skinless chicken breasts not a bone in breast. I didn't see the point to adding the olive oil and salt at the end, I added the salt at the beginning and skipped the olive oil alltogether. I did use olive oil when browning the chicken. I also found the cooking time to be much to long. I checked the dish at 40 min and the chicken was dried out and all of the stock had been absorbed, the orzo was tender so I took it out of the oven and served it.
