  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.

  3. Stir in chicken broth, and bring to a boil.
  4. Stir in chicken, orzo, dried thyme, and rosemary. Simmer for 20 minutes, reducing heat if necessary, until orzo is cooked through and most of the liquid has been absorbed.
