Lemon chicken with Orzo pasta and olives in minimum time I prepared today and present to you straight away. Delicious, easy peasy and very simple materials. For the story, I had enough pasta in the pantry and I was looking for a delicious and simple recipe that won't have much time and voila.
- 1 chicken fillet cut into pieces
- ¾ Cup Orzo medium
- salt & pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 ½ Cup chicken broth
- 2-3 garlic cloves crushed
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, finely chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
- Juice and zest of 1 lemon
- ½ lemon, cut into slices
- ¼ Cup kalamata olives, pitted, whole or washers
Season the chicken and heat half oil in a deep frying pan. Leave to get brown from all sides, about 5 minutes on each side and remove the edge.
Pour the remaining olive oil and saute the onion and garlic. Add the Orzo, the broth and season with salt and pepper. Stir and cook for 5-6 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and the chicken, stir and continue cooking for other 15-20 minutes. If necessary add a little warm water to stay the Orzo juicy and not stick to the pot. Turn off the heat and allow to stand 5 minutes before serving.
