Chicken and Sausage Orzo Pasta

This is an easy and satisfying one-pot chicken, sausage, and pasta dish. In this video, you’ll learn how to make an orzo pasta recipe that’s cooked on the stovetop in the style of a risotto rice dish! You’ll also learn an East Indian technique of sautéing the spice blend with the orzo that really wakes up flavors. Then, using the risotto method, you’ll sauté the orzo pasta with chopped bell pepper, and then gradually add stock, stirring until the pasta has absorbed the stock and is tender—just like risotto. Follow along with Chef John’s recipe for Chicken and Sausage Orzo Pasta. To finish this dish, just add the browned chicken thighs and sausage back into the pan and warm through. This makes a delicious and surprisingly simple weeknight meal that’s easy to clean up.

I noticed the orzo had numbers on the box. Does that matter?

For a gluten-free dish I would replace orzo with quinoa or a mixture of the two and essentially make a risotto. This would be a useful addition to the gluten-free repertoire of chefs.
