  • Add chicken to the pan (on top of the orzo and mushrooms), cover and cook over medium-low heat for about 20 minutes until liquid is absorbed, orzo is tender, and chicken is cooked through. 
  • Top with fresh-squeezed lemon juice and garnish with fresh herbs (such as oregano and rosemary) if desired and serve hot.
