Great meal! The orzo salad was a wonderful addition to the chicken. I really liked the combination of potato flakes and parmesan on the chicken. I think the chicken could be completely cooked in the skillet versus finishing in the oven. It would make it one step easier and I don't think it would change the consistency of the chicken breast. Great weeknight meal. Thanks!
