🍗 Joe Wicks Lemon Chicken Orzo Ingredient

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 2 cups cooked shredded/rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 cups (packed) fresh baby spinach
  • Salt & pepper to taste

🍲 How To Make Joe Wicks Lemon Chicken Orzo

  1. In a pot over medium-high heat, combine the butter, oil, and onion. Saute the onion for 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Toss in the orzo, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Stirring often, cook the orzo for 2-3 minutes until it becomes slightly toasted and flavorful.
  3. Add the cream, lemon juice, and chicken broth and stir to combine. Cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes when it begins to bubble, stirring occasionally.
  4. Lower the heat to medium-low, or even medium-low, as you may find necessary. You don’t want the liquid to diminish too much before the pasta is cooked, so it should bubble slowly instead of boiling furiously.
  5. Toss the chicken in.
  6. Remove from heat, toss in spinach and parmesan, and then cover to cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened to taste. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve right away.

💭 Recipe Tips

  • If you want your orzo to taste even better, try toasting it until it turns a little golden before you add any liquids.
  • To avoid water from reducing before the pasta is cooked all the way through, gently boil the water and stir occasionally.
  • To enhance freshness, add parmesan and spinach after they are off the stove so their flavors and colors don’t fade.
  • Tailor to your taste by trying different herbs or vegetables.
