Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup diced ham
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Chardonnay or other dry white wine
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen green peas
  • 2/3 cup whipping cream
  • 3 cups hot cooked orzo (1½ cups uncooked)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Melt butter in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook until browned, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove from pan.
  2. Add onions, carrot, ham and garlic to pan; sauté until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Stir in broth and wine, if using, scraping to loosen browned bits.
  3. Return chicken to pan. Bring to a boil. Add peas. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until chicken is done, about 10 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from pan; keep warm. Add whipping cream to pan. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat, 8 minutes.
  5. Spoon ¾ cup cooked orzo onto each of 4 plates. Top each with a chicken breast half, 1/3 cup sauce and 1 tablespoon parsley.
