  • Summary

    Delicious and convenient, this baked-pasta dish is an irresistible all-in-one dinner. The Greek flavors in this dish are great with a fresh salad like our recipe for Fennel with Parsley, Parmesan, and Lemon. For a vegetarian main course, omit the chicken and use vegetable broth.

    Ingredients

    • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
    • 1 pound chicken tenderloins, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 1 pound orzo
    • 2 cups crumbled feta (4 ounces)
    • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh dill
    • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 cup grated Parmesan
