Step 4 Add the orzo. Stir well and cover. Cook for 5 minutes. Open and continue to cook until the orzo is al dente, about 3-5 minutes. Stir often so that the orzo doesn't stick together. There should still be some chicken broth in the pan.

Step 5 Add the chicken, white beans, spinach, sundried tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, and basil. Stir together until combined. Taste and season as needed with salt, pepper, or more Parmesan cheese.
