You are also right that orzo is bigger than couscous. Orzo is roughly the size of a long grain rice.

I would just toss some garlic into your original equation, some mushrooms, maybe some leftover gravy and serve on toast. Mmmmmmm chicken goop on a shingle!!!

Ooh - that works! Adds a bit of color to boot!

(Of course I've already made and eaten the dish I was initially talking about, but as sure as the fact that I'll be hungover sometime in the future, I'll be taking these suggestions on board as well...)

How about a bit of white wine added to that soup - also tarragon is a nice flavor change to the sage and thyme.

Can't dial up what tarragon tastes like.... can recall it being very common with chicken dishes tho - I'm game!

I actually did put some nice wine in it - chardonnay iirc.... was excellent!

Tarragon has a slight licorice flavor - I don't like black licorice but I like tarragon - adds a really nice flavor - yep, tarragon and chicken go hand in hand!! I make a "mean" tarragon chicken dish!!!
