Parmesan Basil Orzo – toss the box and make this delicious side dish! orzo, chicken broth and parmesan cheese – ready in 20 minutes.
I am working on cleaning out my pantry. It is a big mess and I am slowing working my way through all the excess food. I found a box of orzo, so I decided to make a quick side dish for some grilled chicken. This is made they same way you make Rice-A-Roni (one of my favorite quick side dishes). Just sauté the orzo for a few minutes, add the broth and simmer. I stirred in some parmesan and fresh basil from our patio garden and viola! Chicken Legs couldn’t get enough of this – it was super delicious! It was creamy and cheesy, almost like a risotto. This will be going into the dinner rotation.
