How to make it
- Boil pasta per package directions. Drain, rinse with cold water and set aside.
- In dutch oven, or similar(I use cast iron), melt butter with olive oil.
- Add onion and cook for about 2 minutes.
- Add garlic, broccoli and mushrooms and cook about 5 minutes, until veggies start to soften.
- Add chicken, tomatoes and Italian seasoning and stir well
- Add cream cheese and cook at low heat, stirring often, until cheese is melted and incorporated through. The veggies should have yielded a bit of liquid, but if mixture looks dry, add a splash of chicken stock.
- Once melted and smooth, add orzo and stir well
