Let's Make It
Heat oven to 375°F.
Combine flour and seasonings in shallow dish. Add chicken, 1 thigh at a time, turning to evenly coat both sides of each thigh with flour mixture.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add 4 chicken thighs; cook 4 min. on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Transfer to 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray, reserving drippings in pan. Repeat with remaining chicken.
Add mushrooms, onions, yellow peppers and garlic to drippings in pan; cook 5 min or until mushrooms are tender and their liquid is cooked off, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes, pasta sauce, artichokes and olives; mix well. Pour over chicken; cover.
Bake 20 min. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 10 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF) and cheese is melted. Meanwhile, cook orzo as directed on package, omitting salt.
Serve chicken mixture over orzo; sprinkle with parsley.
Substitute 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano leaves for the parsley.
Prepare using 4 skinless bone-in chicken breasts (3 lb.); cut crosswise in half before coating with flour mixture and cooking as directed.
