Cook Time

30 minutes


4-6 servings


  • Good Ranchers chicken breast
  • Salt, pepper, and garlic powder (for seasoning)
  • 2 1/2 cups orzo
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallot
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 16 ounces chicken broth (add more as needed)
  • 1/3 cup cream
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese


  1. Season the Good Ranchers chicken breast with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add some oil. Cook the seasoned chicken breast for about 5-7 minutes on each side until golden brown. Once cooked, set it aside to rest.

  3. In the same skillet, melt some butter or heat some oil. Add the chopped shallot and garlic, sautéing them until they become fragrant and translucent. Then add white wine, chicken stock, orzo pasta, and salt.

  4. Stir in the cream, parsley, and lemon juice. Mix well to combine the ingredients.

  5. Slice the cooked chicken breast into thin strips or bite-sized pieces. Stir everything together to coat the chicken and orzo with the sauce.

  6. Sprinkle fresh parsley and grated Parmesan cheese over the dish. Stir them in gently to incorporate.


For the best flavor, use high-quality chicken from Good Ranchers and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Adjust the amount of chicken broth as needed to achieve your desired sauce consistency.
