Ingredients

Orzo:

3 cups chicken stock

3 tablespoons melted butter 

2 teaspoons kosher salt 

1 teaspoon cornstarch 

2 sprigs fresh dill, chopped

2 lemons, zested and juiced

1 clove garlic, minced 

2 cups orzo 

Chicken:

2 teaspoons ground coriander

2 teaspoons kosher salt 

2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

4 small to medium boneless, skinless chicken breasts 

1 lemon, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick slices 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley 

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. For the orzo: Whisk together the stock, butter, salt, cornstarch, dill, lemon zest and juice and garlic in a bowl. Mix in the orzo.
  3. For the chicken: In a separate bowl, mix together the coriander, salt and pepper. Coat the chicken all over with the seasoning.
  4. Pour the stock/orzo mixture into a glass 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Add the chicken breasts, laying them at an angle so all but the tops of the breasts are submerged. Shingle the lemon slices in between the chicken breasts.
  5. Bake, uncovered, until the chicken registers an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, 35 to 40 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes. Top with the chopped parsley before serving.
