Chicken orzo casserole is so comforting and delicious!
It’s a simple casserole so you can have it on the table in less than 30 minutes and you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry or freezer.
I especially love this chicken orzo casserole because of the orzo’s soft and creamy texture.
Oh my goodness, this is a delicious meal!
You’ll need to cook the orzo in advance to the al dente stage and set it aside.
Saute green onions in butter until tender.
Then you’ll add the corn and cooked broccoli.
Toss in some chicken.
And then add the orzo.
Stir in the chicken broth, cream of celery soup and seasoning blend and bring the mixture to a simmer.
Cover and let cook for about 5 minutes or until mixture is completely heated through and bubbling, but stir occasionally to ensure the orzo doesn’t stick to the pan.
What to serve with chicken and orzo casserole
A light and refreshing salad is the perfect way to complete the meal.
- Instead of broccoli, add peas, carrots, green beans or even frozen spinach (cooked and drained well).
- Instead of chicken, try ham or turkey.
- Add black beans.
- Instead of Mrs. Dash Original Seasoning Blend, try Garlic and Herb, Onion and Herb, Lemon Pepper or your favorite homemade seasoning blend.
- Sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top at the end and let it melt.
