2 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup Orzo pasta
1/2 cup uncooked white rice (I use basmati)
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chicken broth (I use low-sodium)
1/4 tsp. Lawry's seasoned salt (optional, depends on your preference)
In a skillet (one that has a good fitting lid), melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted add the orzo pasta, stir and cook until golden brown. Add diced onion, stir and cook until translucent and softened, about 4-5 minutes. Next add the garlic, mix well and cook mixture for an additional minute. Now add the rice and chicken broth. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for 20-25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and the mixture is tender. After cooking, remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes before fluffing. Serve hot and enjoy! This makes 4 servings.
