New This Month


In the time it takes to prepare this hearty dish, you will have chicken on hand for later use. Orzo with carrots is a tasty change from the usual rice pilaf.

    This is one of my go-to recipes! I make it about once a month, always makining extra for later. I adore the vinegary, tangy sauce!

    This meal was okay. Definitely very tangy due to the vinegar. I might make this again, minus the vinegar.

    This is a wonderful dish PLUS you can recycle leftover chicken and veggies into another meal......recipe in this issue offers guidelines for that as well

    My family loves this recipe!! Even my picky 9y/o. Any recipe that gets him to eat onions and tomatoes is a keeper!!

    I bought a whole chicken and used the pieces after cutting it up myself (cheaper than buying separate packs, I found). I used canned roma/plum tomatoes. The meal took some time to make since I had to fry up the chicken in two batches, but it was really good. I've never made orzo like that before and it was great! Would definitely make again - would be a good dish for a dinner party.

    The recipe shown on TV did not have chicken breasts in it. It was 4 chicken leg/thigh pieces. It was mentioned that you could use breast, but I was surprised to see ithe breast listed in addition to the leg quarters. I think this is an error!
