Boil the orzo
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Boil the orzo, 10 to 14 min., until just tender. Drain and rinse. Transfer to a bowl and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking. Keep warm.

Cook the chicken
Meanwhile, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken* dry with paper towel; season with the spices and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 6 to 8 min. per side, until cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 min. before slicing against the grain.
