Strain into a large bow. Stir in the wine and set aside.

The Rest In a large saucepan, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil and sauté‚the onion and garlic over high heat for 3 minutes. Stir in the celery, half the herbs, the orzo and the chicken stock and cook over medium for 25 minutes, stirring from time to time.

While the orzo is cooking, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet and sauté‚the chicken pieces, red pepper and remaining herbs for 3 minutes.

Stir into the cooked orzo. . To Serve: Spoon onto individual dinner plates and garnish each with a tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese, a sprig of basil, parsley, and black pepper to taste.
