Prepare Today Homemade- Lemon Chicken With Orzo

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
Every once in a while I try to act like I can cook.  I freely admit that I am no chef :) I love to bake and most things that I make with sugar come out every time I make them.  Dinner on the other hand, does not always come out as planned.  This recipe made me look like I knew what I was doing and my husband even said that it was good!

Lemon Chicken With Orzo
1 lemon (you'll need the juice and zest)
2-3 chicken breasts
1 1/2 C Orzo pasta
1/2 C sour cream (powdered sour cream works here)
1/4 C Parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic
1 T olive oil
1/2 t salt
2 tomatoes (I used 2 Roma tomatoes)
5-8 basil leaves

Roll your lemon several times with the palm of your hand to warm it up and get the juice flowing. Zest the lemon and save it for later. Cut in half and squeeze the juice over the chicken.  Let it marinate for 20 minutes.  

While the chicken is marinating bring water to a boil and cook the orzo according to package directions.  Drain.  

Grill the chicken.  I used our George Foreman grill so I can grill indoors.  When done place on plate and cover with foil.

Mix the sour cream, Parmesan, garlic, olive oil, salt, and the zest of the lemon.  Pour over the orzo and stir.  Add the chopped tomatoes and chopped basil.  Stir gently.  Serve with the chicken sliced on top.  (I served it on the side) Makes 4 servings.
