DIRECTIONS

  • Trim the fat from the chicken breasts, then cut into bite size pieces.
  • Over medium-high heat, melt together the olive oil and butter in a large non-stick pan with high sides, then add the onion and sauté, stirring often, until just tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the minced garlic and chicken pieces sauté until chicken is browned on all sides, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the broth, orzo, lemon juice, oregano, basil, lemon zest, and pepper into to chicken mixture and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until pasta is to desired texture.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper, stir in the crumbled Gorgonzola, and serve.
  • Goes well with a salad, crisp baby green beans, or asparagus.
  • For a change of pace, try this recipe using cubed (boneless and skinless) turkey, duck, or even goose!
  • A bit of proscuitto sauteed in with the chicken is good, too (not much, though - only about a tablespoon).
