•While chicken simmers, make pasta by bringing a pot of water to a boil. Add Tone’s® Salt and oil and cook the orzo pasta until al dente. Drain and add a splash of olive oil.
•When chicken is ready, add about half of the oregano to the skillet and remove from heat.
•Plate pasta and add some of the sauce from the skillet, followed by shredded Parmesan cheese and a piece of chicken. Garnish with more oregano to taste and serve.
Chicken must be cooked to an internal temperature of 170 degrees and 180 degrees for bone in raw chicken products.
