This is a fast one-pot meal with chicken, mushrooms, and Boursin® that my kids love. You could also omit the chicken or substitute other vegetables.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with seasoning salt and add to skillet; saute until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove chicken to a plate.

  • Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet. Add mushrooms and saute until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove mushrooms to a plate.

  • Place onion in the skillet and saute until soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add uncooked orzo; cook and stir until toasted and fragrant, about 4 minutes. Add 2 cups chicken broth, salt, and pepper. Mix well, reduce heat to medium-low, and bring to a simmer. Cook until orzo is tender, 8 to 10 minutes, adding more chicken broth if needed.

  • Reduce heat to low and stir in garlic and herb cheese spread until completely melted. Add chicken and mushrooms and mix until well combined. Garnish with parsley.

I made this several times and it was delicious. For us I omitted the additional 1 tsp. of salt which we didn't miss at all. If you can't find Boursin you can use Philadelphia (spreadable) cream cheese w/herbs. It comes in a little tub. Read More

I think it s only fair that I rate this recipe highly because I didn t make it according to the instructions so anything I didn t particularly care for might have been of my own doing...although I liked my changes. I used rotisserie chicken because I was lazy I forgot to get mushrooms at the store and I added frozen spinach to make it a one skillet meal. The next time I make it I will try to remember to get the mushrooms because I think they ll be good but I am going to continue to include the spinach it was an excellent addition! Read More
