Author's Notes

Leftovers: Leftover orzo can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 4-5 days. The orzo will continue to absorb any liquid and lose its creaminess. You can reheat and eat as is, or add a splash of liquid to moisten it.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the Olive Oil (1 tablespoon) over medium heat.
Step 2
Once hot, add the Celery (3 rib), Carrot (3), and Yellow Onion (1). Sauté until tender and soft. About 6-8 minutes. Add the Garlic (1 tablespoon), Dried Rosemary (1/2 teaspoon), and Dried Thyme (1/2 teaspoon) and sauté one more minute until fragrant and soft.
Step 3
Add the Chicken Stock (8 cup) to the pot and bring to a boil.
Step 4
Add the Chicken (2 1/2 cup), Fresh Parsley (1 tablespoon), Orzo Pasta (1 pound), Ground Black Pepper (1/2 teaspoon), and Kosher Salt (1 teaspoon). Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to maintain. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring very frequently until the orzo is cooked and most (but not all) of the liquid is absorbed.
Step 5
Stir in the Lemon Juice (2 tablespoon) for freshness. If you’d like it extra creamy, stir in a splash of Heavy Cream (1 splash). Serve and Enjoy.
