FROM YOUR KITCHEN
salt and pepper
1. BAKE THE CHICKEN
PREHEAT the oven to 425 degrees.
SPRAY the baking sheet with non-stick spray.
ARRANGE the chicken breasts on the baking sheet.
DRIZZLE with lemon pepper olive oil and sprinkle with lemon pepper herb blend.
BAKE for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through (no pink inside).
2. BOIL THE ORZO PASTA
While the chicken is baking...
BOIL 4 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of salt in a medium saucepan.
STIR in the orzo pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes.
DRAIN in colander and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.
3. COOK THE VEGGIES
While the orzo pasta is boiling...
WARM the contents of olive oil packets in a small skillet over medium heat.
SAUTÉ the zucchini and mirepoix until golden, about 5 minutes. (★ What’s mirepoix? See note below.)
SEASON to taste with salt and pepper.
★ Mire-Whaaaaa? That’s mirepoix, pronounced “meer-pwah.” This is a fancy French word for diced veggies (typically carrot, celery and onion) that add a base layer of flavor. Mirepoix is typically cooked over gentle heat to sweeten and soften the dish.
4. SERVE & ENJOY!
COMBINE the orzo pasta and veggies.
STIR in cheese curds and Garlic Expressions dressing to your liking. Make sure to shake dressing beforehand to mix well.
SERVE with the chicken and enjoy!
