3. Add the broth, balsamic vinegar, and heavy cream, stir till combined. Stir in the orzo and return to boiling. Place chicken over orzo and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes, or until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the orzo. You want the pasta to be tender and the chicken to be fully cooked (165 F).
4. Top the skillet dish with fresh mozzarella pearls, cover, and continue to cook on medium-low for 5 more minutes, until mozzerla is slightly melted. Sprinkle with fresh basil and chili flakes if desired.
