  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 medium carrot
  • 2 clove garlic
  • 6 cup chicken broth, low-sodium
  • 1 cup orzo, dry
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 each bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon thyme, fresh
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary, fresh
  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup green peas, frozen
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley, fresh

Serve With

  • 2 medium orange


  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Chop onion, peel and chop carrots, and mince garlic; add to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, approximately 10 minutes.
  • Add broth, orzo, Worcestershire sauce and herbs (except parsley), bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered, until orzo is tender but still has some firmness, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Dice chicken and add to pot; season with freshly ground black pepper and salt. Simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in peas and parsley; heat through. Season with additional salt and pepper as needed. (Be sure to remove bay leaf before serving).
  • Serve with sliced oranges.
