  1. Carrie,
    Thank you for sharing this on Tuesday Trivia. It is so pretty and looks delicious. I love the easy and easy on the waistline is always a plus. I featured it on today’s post at http://www.memoriesbythemile.com\
    Have a wonderful day.

  2. Oh, this sounds so yummy! Thanks for sharing this recipe! I’d love it if you linked this up over at Living Well Spending Less for Thrifty Thursday this week! http://www.livingwellspendingless.com/category/thrifty-thursday/

    What a fun twist! I would not have combined Asian flavors with orzo. Very creative! Krista @ A Handful of Everything

  4. Would you believe I’ve never cooked up orzo before? I’ve had it cooked by other people, I just haven’t had any recipes. Now that’s all changed. We love almost anything Asian so this really caught my attention. Is Montreal chicken seasoning just like the Montreal steak seasoning only for chicken? I’ve never heard of it. Is it in the spice section at the grocery store? Would you be willing to share this at our Making Monday link party? We would love it if you did. Thanks. Have a fabulous day. http://www.abrightandbeautifullife.com/making-monday-9/

    I had never thought to put ranch dressing in a recipe. I’ve only used it as dressing for salad. What a great idea! This Asian Orzo looks so good. Thanks for sharing at Saturday Dishes.

    Carrie,

    I stop by to look at all these ingredients again. I have never had ranch with chili sauce and cilantro, etc. This sounds so interesting.
    Sharing!
    Blessings,
