This cheesy, chicken orzo bake is fantastic, and kids will LOVE it, too! Enjoy :)


2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 small chicken breasts cut into bite-sized pieces

½ cup onion, chopped

1 ½ cups orzo (you can find this in a box on the pasta aisle)

1 teaspoon each of salt, pepper, and garlic powder (add more if you like)

1 cup water

1 (14.5-ounce) can chicken broth

1 can Cream of Chicken soup

1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

In a large pot, heat butter and olive oil.  Sauté’ chicken and onion on high heat for 8-10 minutes, or just until chicken is no longer pink.  Stir in dry orzo and all the remaining ingredients and stir well.  Spray a 2-quart oven-proof baking dish with cooking spray.  (I like to use a deep, round baking dish).  Pour orzo mixture into casserole, cover with foil and bake at 350 for 1 hour.  Turn oven off, but leave dish in the oven for one more hour.  Remove from oven, uncover and stir well.  Enjoy J Kids will rave over this!
