  1. Melt the butter in a lidded skillet over medium-low heat. Cook and stir orzo pasta until golden brown. Stir in onion and cook until onion becomes translucent, then add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Mix in the rice and chicken broth. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.

Perfect! I searched everywhere for a simple Rice Pilaf recipe with Orzo. This was exactly what I had in mind. So simple, yet SO flavorful. I did use long grain brown rice and low sodium chicken ...

When I made this recipe, I found it to be a little, O.K., alot bland. But, I did use homemade chicken broth, and while very tasty, it was not overly salted. Perhaps using store bought broth woul...
