Greek Chicken Ingredients

This recipe is serving 2, you can double the ingredients for 4 portions.

Greek Chicken Instructions

1. Cook the orzo

Bring a medium pot of water to boil. Salt it and add the orzo. Cook it following the instructions on the pack, until just tender. Thoroughly drain the orzo, toss with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking and set aside.

2. Cook the chicken

While the orzo cooks, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel, season with Mediterranean spice and salt & pepper. Add the seasoned chicken to the pan and cook partially covered, on both sides until golden brown (about 5-6 minutes per side). Transfer to a plate.

While the chicken cooks, small dice the zucchini. Thinly slice the sundried tomatoes. Zest and juice the lemon. In a bowl combine the Greek yogurt with lemon juice, and 1tbsp olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Cook the vegetables

In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on the medium. Add the zucchini salt and pepper to taste. Cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to soften. Add the sundried tomatoes and cook, stirring frequently for a couple of minutes.
