Per a request from [livejournal.com profile] supermeg83, here is my rice pilaf recipe. It pairs very well with any kind of chicken, but especially roast chicken.

1/3 cup orzo pasta
1 cup long grain white rice
2 1/3 cups unsalted chicken stock
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt (if using broth, regular chicken stock or salted butter, omit or reduce the amount of salt)
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp herb de Provence
1 tsp onion powder

In a small pot on medium heat, toast the dry orzo pasta in the olive oil until golden brown - about 3-4 minutes. In a medium pot or rice cooker, combine the rice, toasted orzo and spices. Add chicken stock and butter to the pot and cook as directed on rice package.

Serves 4.

(Note: edited slightly for reading comprehension, also mandarin orange slices are now Chester's official favorite new food. He inhales them.)

Anthogna:
