Orzo with Chicken and Lemon

Submitted by: VAL_LYNNE


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    The juice of one lemon
    2 large chicken breast, butterflied
    1 cup uncooked orzo
    cup yogurt
    cup Parmesan cheese
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 Tablespoon olive oil
    teaspoon salt
    Zest of one half lemon
    pint grape tomatoes cut in half
    5-8 basil leaves, chiffonade

Directions

Since you are going to use both the juice and the zest of a lemon, zest your lemon with a zester and set aside - you'll use the zest of one half lemon.
In a small bowl, squeeze the lemon juice over the chicken and sprinkle with teaspoon salt. Let it sit for about twenty minutes. Heat a grill to medium high-heat (or a grill pan)
Cook chicken until just done (about 3 minutes each side) remove from grill to a plate, cover with foil and set aside.
Bring a pan of water to a boil and cook Orzo according to package directions.
Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, mix together yogurt, Parmesan, garlic, olive oil salt and lemon zest.
When the Orzo is cooked, drain and put in a large bowl add the sour cream mixture, tomatoes and basil.
Cut the chicken breasts into strips and place on top of the orzo!
