Winner Winner Chicken Orzo Dinner

with Cheesy Roasted Zucchini and Tomato

Although this recipe’s zucchini and tomato medley is a side, it takes center stage in our eyes. It’s equally as creamy as it is crispy, and the combination of panko, mozzarella, and Parmesan sprinkled on top is to thank for that. Served next to an herbed chicken breast and lemony orzo that keep things simple and satisfying, this meal keeps it light without lacking in flavor.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Baking Sheet
Large Pot
Large Pan


Preheat and Prep

Wash and dry all produce. Adjust rack to upper position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Slice zucchini into ¼-inch-thick rounds. Cut tomato into ½-inch-thick wedges. Toss zucchini and tomato with 1 TBSP olive oil and half the Italian seasoning on a baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.

Roast Veggies and Cook Pasta

Roast zucchini and tomato in oven until just shy of tender, about 10 minutes. Once water is boiling, add half the orzo from package to pot (use the rest as you like). Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Drain, then return to pot.

Butterfly Chicken

With your hand on top of one chicken breast, cut ¾ of the way through middle, parallel to cutting board, stopping before you slice through completely. Repeat with other chicken breast. Open each up and season all over with salt, pepper, and remaining Italian seasoning.

Cook Chicken and Prep

Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink in center, 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside on a plate. Meanwhile, cut mozzarella into ½-inch cubes. Halve lemon. Roughly chop parsley.

Broil Veggies

Once veggies have roasted 10 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven. Heat broiler to high or increase oven temperature to 500 degrees. Sprinkle veggies with panko, mozzarella, and Parmesan. Broil (or bake) until panko is golden brown, cheese is melted, and veggies are tender, 3-5 minutes.

Finish and Plate

Add juice from one lemon half and half the parsley to pot with orzo and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide orzo between plates. Top with veggies and chicken. Drizzle with any chicken juices from plate and a squeeze of lemon. Garnish with remaining parsley and serve.
