This was a great, quick and easy recipe. My husband loved it. We threw in some asparagus into the orzo since it was in the fridge and I only had dried oregano, but it worked. Happy something so tasty is so healthy!!
This recipe was delicious and so easy to make! Chicken turned out moist and tasty and the salad was fresh and so flavorful! I would only add more olives and feta to the salad and I did add a bit more olive oil to the dressing.
I have made this twice now. I changed up the way the chicken is made because, as described, it came out dry and too lemony for my taste. The orzo salad, however, is wonderful made as described and can easily be adjusted to taste.
I actually really enjoyed this. It was very lemony and tasted good despite being healthy.
A favorite! The baked chicken with lemon zest is an almost-plain but perfect foundation for the flavorful orzo salad. You can substitute almost any grain for the orzo if you don't have any on hand. VERY versatile, and even more delicious the next day when the flavors have time to settle in.
Really liked the orzo salad. The leftovers were especially good, as all the flavors had melded even more.
The chicken was extremely dry!
