LEMON BASIL ORZO WITH CHICKEN


INGREDIENTS
  • 1/2 lb dry orzo pasta
  • 2 lbs chicken breast tenders
Olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 TB salted butter
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 TB freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly torn basil leaves
  • Garnish: Lemon wedges, more parmesan, extra basil leaves
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a pot of generously salted water, cook orzo just until al dente; don’t overcook. Drain and toss with about 2 TB olive oil to prevent sticking. Keep warm.
  2. While pasta is cooking: pat dry the moisture from chicken tenders with paper towels. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 tsp kosher salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and 1 tsp garlic powder. Sprinkle evenly on both sides of chicken pieces.
  3. In a large skillet (not non-stick) add 4 TB olive oil over medium high heat. When oil is hot, cook chicken tenders just until no longer pink in center, about 2-3 min per side (depending on thickness of chicken.) Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.
