This is the ideal weeknight meal that requires minimal preparation and yields maximum tastiness. Think of this as a dressed-up, yummier version of your parents’ mushroom-noodle casserole. The crispy chicken skin adds a savory crunch to the dish while orzo acts as the perfect base for the creamy, umami-rich mushrooms. This dish is a crowd-pleaser and can easily be doubled to serve a larger family. For additional vegetables, serve with a simple salad and enjoy!

Note: If you would like to schedule this meal but do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigerating, sauté mushrooms, onions, and garlic with 2 tsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until softened, about 8 minutes, instead of broiling.

How does the vegetable cook setting translate to the 3.0, since the 3.0 can’t do sous vide and roast at the same time?

Hi SCM, this recipe is scheduled to be updated in the near future. In the meantime, I’d suggest roasting the chicken and the mushrooms at 325°F for 45 minutes instead of sous viding. You can cook the pasta in the Suvie Starch Cooker. Look for an updated version of this recipe in just a few weeks.
