  • 4 whole(s) garlic cloves


  1. 4 garlic cloves
  2. 4 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  3. 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 8 oz. orso
  5. 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  6. ¼ tsp. salt plus additional to taste
  7. 1 Tbs. minced fresh thyme
  8. 2 tsp. ground coriander
  9. Pinch freshly ground black pepper plus additional to taste
  10. 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb.) cut crosswise into ½-inch-thick chunks
  11. ⅓ cup dry white wine
  12. 2 tbs. minced fresh Italian parsley

  13. 1. Finely chop garlic in a food processor. Add carrots and pulse into 1/4 to 1/2-inch pieces.
  14. 2. Heat 1 Tbs. olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add orzo and stir until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Add the carrot mixture and stir to blend. Pour in 2 3/4 cups broth and 1/4 tsp. salt and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat until orzo is tender and broth is absorbed, about 12 minutes.
  15. 3. Meanwhile, season chicken pieces with thyme, coriander and a pinch each salt and black pepper. Heat remaining oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken in a single layer and cook until browned, about 2 minutes a side. Remove chicken to a plate and top with parsley. Add wine and remaining broth to skillet and boil until reduced to 1/3 cup, about 1 minute.
  16. 4. Season orzo with salt and black pepper to taste. Spoon pan juices over chicken; serve with orzo.
