4 4-oz boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. In a small bowl, combine ingredients for orange marmalade and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Heat a large saucepan over medium heat and sauté onion, butter and garlic until onion is translucent. Add orzo and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes until orzo begins to turn golden brown.
