Tonight on cooking with Hiei.  I will give an easy recipe that will have an amazing taste and will give people the impression that hey you can cook a great meal.


1 box of Orzo
Chicken Stock (Homemade or from a box)
1 Jar of Vodka Sauce (I prefer Victoria’s but if you have a favorite use that)
1 Package of Chicken
Feta or Parmesan Cheese
Balsamic Vinegar
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Or Garlic Oil I prefer Garlic Oil)
Turmeric (Optional)
Dill (Optional)

Make the Chicken First it takes the  longest to cook

Set Oven to 375 degrees
In an oven safe baking dish. Sprinkle some oil on the bottom of the dish enough to coat but not enough to make the chicken swim in oil.  Place the chicken in the dish, put some oil on the chicken (Again do not drown the chicken in oil just enough to flavor it.)  Sprinkle Salt and pepper over the chicken and small sprinkle of Turmeric and Dill over the chicken.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes

Once this is done, remove the oven.  (Chick should be white all the way through that is how you know it is done.)  Take half of the chicken you made, slice or shred it.  Than set it off to the side along with the whole pieces.

Make the Pasta

Bring the Chicken Stock to a rolling boil.  Add whole box of Orzo (Or Half of a box) There will be a lot so you may have left overs to enjoy later.  Follow the boxes directions for cooking time on the Orzo.  Stir occasionally.  Once it is done save 1 cup of the stock off to the side.

Make the Sauce

In a sauce pan, over medium heat.  Melt a couple pats of butter.  Place in entire jar of sauce and a cup of the stock from the pasta portion.  Once it starts to bubble add two or three dashes of Balsamic Vinegar and 1 table spoon of Feta or Parmesan Cheese.  Stir until the sauce is evenly heated and everything is incorporated.

Bring it together.  In the pan with the orzo add the shredded chicken, half of the reserved stock and mix in a good portion of the sauce and leave the rest of the sauce off to the side for people to place extra sauce on their pasta.  Mix in one more table spoon of Feta or Parmesan Cheese.  Mix well.

One the dishes Place one whole piece of chicken and one or two scoops of pasta.  Serve with salad of your liking.

    Is cooking with alcohol the same as consuming alcohol? I’m not able to drink alcohol and I was curious to see if I could enjoy this recipe. Can I?

    Sorry if this is a repeat. I am curious if cooking with alcohol is the same as consuming alcohol? I cannot consume alcohol so I am wondering if this is the same thing? Thanks for the recipie.

    Cooking with Alcohol is not the same as consuming Alcohol. When you cook with it, it is only for taste. It doesn’t have an Alcohol content because it has cooked out. I have never made a vodka sauce from scratch. I get the pre-made stuff like Victoria’s. The same is true for my recipe for Corned Beef Cabbage. I use 1 whole beer it is there for the taste and the alcohol content gets cooked out.
