One-Pan "Marry Me" Chicken Orzo




total time


1 ½ Pounds Boneless, Skinless Chicken breast (cut into cubes)

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

4-5 Cloves Garlic (mashed)

3/4 Cup Sun-Dried Tomatoes (packed in oil and drained)

2 Teaspoons Italian seasoning

2 Teaspoons Paprika

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

1 Cup Orzo

2 3/4 Cups Chicken Broth or Water

3/4 Cup Full-Fat Coconut Milk or Heavy Cream

2 Large Handfuls Fresh Spinach

3/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese (freshly grated)


Prepare Chicken

To make this recipe, start by preparing the chicken. Pat the chicken breasts dry with a paper towel and slice them into cubes. Set them aside while you prepare the skillet.

Heat Skillet

Heat a skillet, on the stove, over medium heat, and add in the oil.

Cook Chicken

Once the oil is hot, add in the chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the edges start to cook.

Add Seasonings

Then, add in the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, italian seasoning, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper, and cook for 3-4 more minutes.

Add Orzo and Broth

Then, add in the orzo and broth and stir well.

Cover and Cook

Reduce the heat to medium, then cover the pan and allow it to cook for 12 minutes. Remove the cover every few minutes and stir, to ensure that the orzo doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.

Add Milk and Spinach

Once the orzo is cooked through, add in the coconut milk or heavy cream and spinach and stir until the spinach is wilted.

Add Cheese

Finally, add in the freshly-grated parmesan cheese and stir one last time.

Plate, Serve, and Enjoy

Once it's done, remove it from the heat, serve it immediately, and enjoy!
