This is a great way to make use of leftover roast chicken. Pancetta, spinach and toasted pine nuts add heaps of flavour.
Altered ingredient amounts. I also had to make alterations, but loved the end result...used 1/2 the orzo, actually used some beer and red wine vinegar for the liquids, and toasted almonds for nuts (each what I had on hand). I've sprinkled some romano/parmesan on top and think it is delicious! - 29 Sep 2008
This was tasty and easy. Way too much orzo though. Cut that in half. This recipe makes more than 4 servings. - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. I just finished eating this for dinner. It was very good. I only used half the orzo the recipe called for and cooked it in chicken stock for added flavour. I used marinated artichoke hearts instead of plain and rough chopped them to make the pieces smaller. I used chicken stock in place of the wine and it was still tasty. My husband is eating a second helping right now. I will definitely make this again using the changes I made. Thanks for a great base recipe. - 29 Sep 2008
