This recipe is so very simple! It is a great side dish for just about any meal. I served it with Spicy Honey Brushed Chicken and Roasted Bell Peppers, Broccoli and Summer Squash tonight and it was perfect.
My rice loving son ate a double portion and still asked for more. There were no leftovers at all. I recommend doubling this recipe if serving more than 3-4 people.
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup orzo
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 cup uncooked white rice
- 2 cups chicken broth
- kosher salt to taste (you might not need this if using store bought broth)
- Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the orzo. Cook and stir the orzo until it all turns a golden brown. Add the onion and cook until translucent. Then add the garlic and cook for about a minute longer.
- Pour the broth and the rice into the skillet, stir and allow to come to a boil. Reduce heat to low (make sure it is simmering still) and cover with lid. Simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. 20-25 minutes. Remove from heat, let stand for a few minutes and then fluff with fork before serving. Enjoy!
