Ingredients

  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp parsley, chopped (optional, for garnish)

  • 2 cups orzo, uncooked
  • 3 cups chicken broth

Cooking Instructions

  1. First, prepare a large skillet. Heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Next, sear the chicken for around 5 minutes on each side until it turns golden brown. The thickness of the chicken affects how long you need to cook it. When it is well cooked, put it on a plate and set it aside.
  2. Use the same skillet and sauté asparagus for around 3 minutes. After it is well cooked, transfer it to a plate and set aside.
  3. Next, sauté the garlic and onion for around 3 minutes. When it gets translucent and aromatic, it means that the garlic and onion are well cooked. You can add more olive oil if you need.
  4. After that, add the orzo and sauté it. Continue by adding half and half and chicken broth. Stir them well.
  5. Boil them and turn the heat on medium low. Cover it and cook it for around 10 minutes.
  6. When 10 minutes have passed, open the lid and add parmesan cheese. Take a spoon to taste. Add some salt and pepper if you need any.
  7. Now, add the asparagus and stir them. Slice the chicken as well before adding it to the skillet.
  8. Last, now pour it to a serving bowl and garnish it with more parmesan cheese and parsley.
