Chicken with Preserved Lemon & Orzo
This chicken with preserved lemon and orzo recipe is a delicious weeknight meal. It takes less than 30 minutes to make, a large chunk of which is hands-off time. The preserved lemon adds a huge amount of flavor without overpowering the dish.
There's an amazing shop a few blocks from my house called the Spice House where I buy all my spices. I got both the preserved lemon and the cinnamon for this recipe there. I can't tell you what a difference it makes when you have fresh spices and herbs - you have to taste it! As you can imagine, the shop smells heavenly, so if you are ever in Chicago, Evanston, or Milwaukee, I'd suggest popping in!
I know you'll enjoy this chicken with preserved lemon recipe - do let me know if you make it!
