One skillet dinners are so popular and with good reason! Easy, quick perfect for weeknights and elevated enough to serve family-syle over the weekend! I developed this recipe with all of my favorite flavors in one place. It’s not Chicken Marsala in the traditional sense, but this Skillet Chicken Marsala & Orzo incorporates all of the traditional flavors that you know and love! Serving it over orzo is a perfect way to soak up all of the delicious juices.
Chicken thighs are perfect for this recipe because you can sear them but then braise them in liquid to cook completely without drying them out. If you’d like to use white meat or chicken breasts, I would suggest pounding the chicken breasts to equal thickness so that they cook evenly. Another alternative is to use skinless/boneless chicken thighs. Either way, braising it in chicken stock over the orzo allows it to cook through and it will stay juicy and tender. A perfect family style meal your family will love!
