Lemon Chicken and Orzo

This healthy dish is fresh and flavorful. I love lemon chicken and orzo seems to be my new food obsession as of late. (kinda of a weird food obsession, I know) I decided why not create a dish using the two. I decided to grill my lemon chicken since it's a gorgeous day here, but sauteing or baking it would also be good too. Either way, it's a win/win!

Lemon Chicken and Orzo
Serves 4
Cal 281.5, Carbs 22, Fat 8. Fiber 1, Protein 30.7

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (mine were about 5 oz)
1 tsp. garlic powder
Juice of two lemons
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 cups orzo pasta, cooked to al dente

In a large bowl, whisk together garlic powder, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Place chicken in marinade mixture. Cover and place in fridge or at least one hour.

Grill chicken over medium heat 5-7 minutes per side or until juices run clear. Remove from grill and slice.

Evenly divide orzo among four plates, top with sliced chicken, chopped parsley and parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
