I had never tried orzo before making this dish. I don’t I’m alone in this. It kind of resembles rice but let me assure you that it’s a pasta.

One Pan Chicken with Mushrooms and Orzo is perfect for the nights you are running around like a chicken with his head cut off, but impressive enough to serve it at a dinner party. Less dishes, less washing!




One Pan Chicken with Mushrooms and Orzo


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 bunches of green onions, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup orzo pasta
  • 3-4 cups baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup grated Mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream




  1. Season chicken with 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Working in batches, add chicken to the skillet in a single layer and cook until golden brown and cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 6-8 minutes per side; set aside.
  4. Add mushrooms and green onions, and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 3-5 minutes. Stir in garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  5. Sprinkle flour over the mushrooms and cook until lightly browned about 1 minute.
  6. Stir in chicken stock and Dijon, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Stir in orzo; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  7. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until pasta is cooked through, about 6 minutes. Stir in spinach, Mozzarella, and heavy cream until the spinach has wilted, about 3 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet.
  8. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
