This orzo gives the creamy texture of risotto without all the stirring.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients and 1 teaspoon pepper in a shallow dish or heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken; cover or seal, and chill 2 hours, turning occasionally.

Step 2

Cook orzo in 2 cans chicken broth according to package directions; drain and set aside.

Step 3

Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade.

Step 4

Brown chicken in a large nonstick skillet coated with vegetable cooking spray over high heat 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from skillet; keep warm.

Step 5

Sauté onion, garlic, and celery, in skillet coated with cooking spray until tender. Add remaining 1 can chicken broth and wine; cook, stirring often, 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup. Stir in orzo, Parmesan cheese, 3 tablespoons chopped sage, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring often, just until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately with chicken. Garnish, if desired.

I thought the chicken was nothing special at all, but we really liked the orzo. Great way to use up the mountains of sage we grow each summer!
