DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450øF.
  • Wash chicken and rub outside and inside with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  • Season skin with salt and pepper.
  • Place chicken in a medium-to-large baking pan, preferably glass or clay, and spread orzo evenly around chicken.
  • Add remaining oil and other ingredients except cheese and toss in pan to combine.
  • Place pan, uncovered, in hot oven and reduce heat to 350øF.
  • Bake for 1 to 1-1/2 hours, basting chicken every 10 to 15 minutes with pan juices, until chicken is tender and orzo cooked, adding more water, if necessary, during baking if orzo seems too dry.
  • Sprinkle with grated cheese before serving.
