    4 servings (serving size: 4 1/2 ounces scallops and about 3/4 cup pasta mixture)

    Cooking spray
    1/2 cup prechopped onion
    1 cup uncooked orzo (rice-shaped pasta)
    1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 1/2 pounds sea scallops
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion to pan; sauté 3 minutes. Stir in pasta, broth, wine, and thyme; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and pasta is al dente. Stir in chopped chives and lemon juice. Keep warm.

    Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle scallops evenly with salt and pepper. Add scallops to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with pasta mixture.
