"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali
1 stick of butter (1/4 lb.) 2 cups minute rice 1 cup of orzos 5 cups chicken broth 2 ½ tsp. salt 1 large can of chicken meat
Melt butter in bottom of pan, add orzos and brown them. Add salt to chicken broth & heat. When boiling, add rice and canned chicken meat. Remove from heat and let sit for 2-3 hours. The more time allowed to set, the better the flavor.
