Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one of the better Kraft chicken recipes. This is one of the better Kraft chicken recipes. Having made this many times I have found that using a large jar of drained marinated artichoke hearts makes it tastier than the frozen along with leaving the tomatoes whole and stirring them in at the end to just get them hot so they don't end up tasting soggy. This is a keeper and I always have to double up on the recipe when my young grandson comes to eat since he always calls dibs on the left overs. So fast and easy to make and oh so good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. I cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Used 6 oz. pack of snap pea/pods rather than the artichoke, and I used chopped Roma rather than the cherry tomatoes. I noticed the orzo seemed really sticky/starchy as it was cooking, so I added an extra half cup of water. It turned out great, love the orzo! Broccoli would work well as the veggie here, too.

The only thing I did differently was make 2 servings instead of 4, but I followed the directions as stated, making no other edits/additions. It was quick, tasty, and filling. I will be making this again--it is a perfect weeknight dinner.

Cut this recipe in half to make a two serving dish, added a squirt of 1/4 lime juice while letting it set for 5 minutes, tossed in the basil and the dish was fantastic. I paired the dish with a margarita cocktail. This is a quick summer time dish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was excellent! This was excellent! I didn't have artichokes, so used some broccoli & green beans and cut the chicken before cooking. Next time will also add some garlic, but will be making it again!
