This Parmesan Chicken and Mushroom Orzo is a super easy one pot meal prep. Delicious and fast!


I am legit the worst. I’ve had this Parmesan Chicken and Mushroom Orzo recipe shot and edited in June but never got around to typing up the post. The other day, I was reaching for some orzo to make this recipe again when it clicked in my head that hey, I forgot to write up the post! I have way too much fun shooting than I do writing so I guess this kind of fell into the back burner.

Anyways, this Parmesan Chicken and Mushroom Orzo is a super easy one pot meal prep that pretty much covers my lunch for most of the week. Orzo has quickly become one of my favourite dump and go style pastas and it is just so versatile with what it can go with. (See my Orzo Bolognese recipe for another variation)

Parmesan Chicken and Mushroom Orzo

Trust me when I say this is easy and literally a dump and go. I cooked the chicken first in the pot before putting it aside and then in the skillet, I put mushrooms, chicken stock, orzo, seasoning, and then parmesan cheese before putting the chicken back in. Easy peasy lemon squeezy! See below for the video recipe to see just how easy it is!

  1. I love how simple this recipe is! I’m all about one pot meals – less clean up lol. Our go-to one pot meal is instant brown rice, a can of black beans, and a can of tomatoes. That’s when we haven’t thought of anything else for dinner and it’s really late already! 😉
