Lemon Orzo Chicken Pasta

Light and simple. Orzo pasta with lemon juice, chicken, mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and spinach. I typically use a rotisserie chicken, since they are typically packed with great flavor already.



Step: 1

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook orzo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

Step: 2

Combine chicken, mozzarella cheese, spinach, basil, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper with orzo pasta.

Step: 3

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate to let flavors mingle, 20 to 30 minutes.
