grilled chicken with oregano and lemon
Sometimes all you want, after a long hot summer day, is a light easy dinner that you can cook outside. That’s exactly what we were searching for when we happened upon this grilled chicken recipe over the weekend. And since we don’t have a crazy fancy outdoor kitchen with gas burners… the orzo did get boiled inside. But you know what? I can handle one pot of boiling water as long as the oven can stay off! The chicken was incredibly moist and tasty, and the orzo was the perfect side dish with its nutty
Ingredients: Chicken cutlets, 2 cloves of garlic, 3 sprigs of fresh oregano, 2 lemons, 1 cup orzo, extra virgin olive oil, 1/4 cup toasted hazlenuts, and salt & pepper.

I am officially craving some orzo now! That dinner looks yumm-o!
Whew! Look at that chicken… whoever grilled that! Masterful. Watch out Bobby Flay :P
This is so weird because my fiance and I were JUST talking about how to get healthier, and he mentioned he would like to start eating more chicken and rice – light meals. And then I read this. I’m printing it out and we’ll try it this week!
I just started eating chicken again, and this sounds like a fantastic, easy, and delicious recipe. Thanks for sharing!
