    A delicious one-dish meal that is a good variation from chicken with rice. We really like the orzo pasta.

      I debated making this one because I thought I would take longer then it did. But the family was glad that I did take the extra 3 minutes browning the chicken. I liked the taste of the oregano and garlic in the orzo, which was complimented by the lemon pepper atop of the chicken. Just make sure you watch and make sure there is enough liquid in the pasta as it bakes. Another winning recipe for my cookbook. TY

      Very easy to make. There wasn't anything offensive in the recipe, we just found it to be bland; I had even added extra salt, boullion granules, garlic powder, and replaced the water with more chicken stock. My main problem was with the recipe directions, step 5 says to brown meat-side down, but the ingredient list calls for boneless skinless chicken breasts not a bone in breast. I didn't see the point to adding the olive oil and salt at the end, I added the salt at the beginning and skipped the olive oil alltogether. I did use olive oil when browning the chicken. I also found the cooking time to be much to long. I checked the dish at 40 min and the chicken was dried out and all of the stock had been absorbed, the orzo was tender so I took it out of the oven and served it.
