I think the day I got my first Staub skillet was the day I created the “one skillet” dinner. Not saying I invented the one skillet dinner by any means. Just that that I invented it for myself that day. It was many, many years ago. But ever since then I’ve made countless one skillet dinners in my Staub pan. It’s a method of cooking I fall back on weekly.

Throwing everything in the same skillet just makes sense. For one, you’re saving dishes by avoiding using multiple pans. But even more importantly, you’re creating a dish that’s full of flavor. When you cook everything together, the flavors are able to blend, making every element of the recipe delicious.

Of course, with this recipe I created one extra step with that feta sauce. But trust me, it’s worth it!

The process – cook the chicken

Season the chicken with Dijon, garlic, shallots, a bit of rosemary and some paprika. I like to sear the chicken to give it a nice crisped base. Then I toss it in a little butter, add some lemon slices, and let everything cook up along side the chicken. The butter browns and everything smells delicious.

Next, pull the chicken and lemon out out of the skillet, then add the orzo and broth. Stir in the kale…or you could also use spinach. Then slide the chicken into the orzo and throw the whole skillet into the oven to finish cooking.

Make the feta sauce

I couldn’t share this recipe without including a sauce. You all know how it goes around here, never enough sauce. Enter my feta sauce. It’s whipped feta cheese with a bit of yogurt, lemon, and if you have some fresh herbs on hand, toss those in too.

The salty feta creates an addicting sauce. Every spoonful is delicious, but it’s especially great over this dijon chicken.

It’s a real crowd pleaser, and comes out of the oven looking pretty and smells even more delicious. I threw some fresh dill on top for color and served the chicken and orzo right out of the skillet.

Perfect for easy weeknight dinners or even entertaining. It really brightens the table on a cold winter day!

Ingredients

Feta Sauce

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
    2. In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons olive oil, Dijon mustard, 3 cloves garlic, 1 shallot, rosemary, paprika, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Add the chicken and toss well to combine.
    3. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken. Sear on both sides until golden, 3-5 minutes. During the last 2 minutes of cooking, add the butter and lemon slices. Remove everything from the skillet.
    4. Add the orzo, 1 shallot, and 1 clove of garlic. Cook until the orzo is toasted, about 2 minutes. Add the broth, kale, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat. Slide the chicken, lemon slices, and any juices left on the pan back into the skillet. Bake, uncovered for 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
    5. Meanwhile, make the feta sauce. Combine the feta, yogurt, garlic, and lemon juice in a blender and blend until creamy. Stir in the paprika, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. If desired, thin with additional lemon juice.
    6. Serve the chicken and orzo topped with the feta sauce and dill.

  1. Amazing. Just succulent! This might be my fave. It’s quick and easy. It has all the right ingredients that I love on chicken (Rosemary, butter, lemon) but it’s flavorful and doesn’t feel like there’s something missing that I have to doctor up. I would say the feta sauce is a little thick/pasty/chunky and difficult to blend if you’re using a nutribullet so I had to add more lemon which might have been too much. I guess I could’ve used olive oil but I was trying to decrease the calories. I’d love a topping that’s smoother

  2. 5 stars
    Delicious and easy recipe! I upped the kale, using more like 3 cups to avoid wasting any and it was perfect! Definitely plan on making it again!

  3. This was incredible! Just incredible, and leftovers were even better! Will make this one again for sure!

  4. 5 stars
    Loved this recipe! We actually avoided going grocery shopping for a while, so I used what I had on hand. About to go out again, so I’m making a list with ingredients for this!

    I made this with some modifications since I worked with what I had. I have a lot of leftover dijon mustard from your slow cooker french chicken recipe, which was also fantastic! Anywho, I had some ricotta that’s been in and out of the freezer so many times (I hate wasting food especially dairy products). So I used that to make the sauce. I make my own broth from vegetable scraps I freeze, but I forgot to defrost a bag of my broth earlier so I ended up using the chicken flavored bouillon with water (I know lots of salt, very unhealthy…it’s what I had). I used about 3 chicken thighs and followed the rest of the recipe. I did not have fresh dill or any leafy greens. It was so delicious!

    My boyfriend made some broth yesterday and it’s in the fridge now, so I might try making this for dinner tonight! The orzo was hard for me to find in the store we usually go to, so hopefully, it’s there. I don’t know why, but I prefer it over noodles sometimes.

    Bottom Line: If you did not read my review…this recipe is so easy and quick to put together. You might already have everything lying around your house or be able to make some modifications. 10/10 definitely making again.

    It turned out absolutely wonderful,yes there is some prep work but it all comes together easy and fast,I used fresh baby spinach not a fan of kale and will do 4oz next time of feta,6 oz was to thick,I did thin it out.

    1. Hey Mary Ann,
      Happy Friday!! Thanks a lot for giving this recipe a go, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! xxTieghan

  6. I am a fan of every HBH one pan recipe with orzo and this one was no exception. I used fresh baby spinach instead of kale because I had it on hand. I thought I had feta when I started cooking but found it was Gorgonzola crumbles when I got to making the sauce so I went ahead and used it! We all liked the combo so go ahead and try it if you’re a Gorgonzola fan. I’ll definitely use the feta next time because I was looking forward to that feta goodness and this will certainly be a repeat recipe. Thanks Tieghan!

  7. My kitchen smells AMAZING! Perfect meal with our temperatures dipping into negative windchills. I substituted the kale with frozen spinach. Not a big fan but I had it in the freezer. Next time definitely using kale according to the recipe. The feta sauce was delicious. The presentation 5 star. So happy I’m following you. You definitely have a gift. Looking forward to other recipes. Thanks !

    1. I did roasted cauliflower with mine and it turned out great. Toss florets in olive, salt and pepper. Sheet pan in oven at 450 for about 20ish minutes until browning and tender. I do top rack so it gets those little browned crunchy pieces on top.

    The flavors mix so well together and it’s easy to make! I did not tip the dish with dill. The sauce brought it all together!

  9. Hi Tieghan~

    I know I am the minority here, my family always teases me about how picky I can be with cheeses. I don’t like feta cheese (as in Fear Factor food, i just can’t! LOL). What would you recommend as a substitute? Garlic & Herb Boursin maybe? i love ALL your recipes, you are a culinary genius and I tell everyone about your site. HBH RULES!

    1. Hey Megan,
      Goat cheese or ricotta would also work really well here. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

    2. I bought the Cava yogurt dill dressing/sauce/marinade from Whole Foods and used that instead! I love feta, but needed something to make it a bit easier for me to prep! No feta in the sauce so might be a good sub for you too!! It’s delicioussssss

    1. Hi Casey,
      It calls for uncooked, so you will follow the recipe as directed and the orzo will cook in the dish. Please let me know if you give it a try, I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

    1. Hi Annie,
      For the feta sauce you will definitely want to use block feta to get the creamy texture. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

    I am not great in the kitchen but this recipe was easy to make and tasted delicious. I’m enjoying leftovers right now for lunch and it’s just as good the next day heated up.

  11. Hi. A couple of questions. Can I make the sauce in advance and put it in the refrigerator? I assume I should then bring it to room temperature before I serve it. Also, can I use skinless chicken breasts or thighs? Not a big fan of chicken skin but I don’t want to ruin the dish. Thank you so much

    1. Hey there,
      Yes, totally fine to make the feta sauce in advance and keep in the fridge. Yes, skinless chicken is great too! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  12. 5 stars
    I made this using boneless chicken thighs and they worked great! It’s the most delicious thing I’ve made in a long time and I just made the pasta, tomato baked feta dish last weekend which makes me swoon every time!
    I’m a lemon lover, and got to use 2 of my own Meyer lemons in this dish. You can eat the slices, rind and all, because baking makes them tender. The feta sauce is what put this recipe over the top. Excellent pairing with the chicken, orzo and kale + shallots, garlic, chicken stock and smoked paprika. A++

  13. I made this tonight and it was so good! I was out of chicken so I substituted shrimp. It was so yummy and I plan on making it again with chicken sometime soon. 😊

  14. 5 stars
    This was so easy and so delicious. I made my sauce thinner and it tasted incredible. I think this would be great for feeding guests or making and reheating throughout the week. I am so grateful to eat food that nourishes me and is delicious.

  15. 5 stars
    HOLY MOLY! This was soooooo fricken delicious! Added a little water to the feta sauce because I was worried it would be too acidic if I added too much lemon juice and it was perfect without taking away from the flavor. Will definitely make this again.

  16. 5 stars
    Tieghan!! You are a brilliant flavor queen! This is such an incredible combination of heavy and bright flavors. One of my favorites you have done EVER! Adding this to my regular rotation. I just added a tiny amount of cream to the sauce since I was having trouble getting it to smooth out. But dang girl….bravo.

  17. 5 stars
    This recipe was perfect. Provided me with a great new way to think about cooking orzo…..first toasting and then cooking in a pan. It was simple to execute and yet truly special and delish. I tried 5 of HBH recipes over the long snowy 3 day weekend in NC and it was great! Can’t wait to try more! I would post a photo of my pan, but not sure how (yikes, I’m not very I.T. savvy!)

  18. 5 stars
    Tastes just as delicious as it looks! The orzo was perfectly creamy, and the pop of dill gave such a brightness to the flavors!

    1. Hi Lex,
      Yes, I would use Arborio rice. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

    1. Hi Rena,
      I like to use a cast iron skillet for this recipe. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  19. Absolutely delicious! I used bone-in pork chops instead of chicken and substituted goat cheese for the feta, because feta is not a winner in this household (sadly). I made this for my picky family of 7 and everyone agreed it was yummy. Thank you for the recipe!!

  20. 5 stars
    For some reason I found this recipe a little harder to follow, but my questions were addressed in previous reviews. I started prepping, thinking there is no way this will turn out well. Two TBS Dijon, two TBS chopped fresh rosemary? And I love fresh rosemary, but… The end result was delicious! Don’t even think about not making the feta sauce! We thought the recipe was perfect as written. It wasn’t too lemony, the sauce wasn’t too thick, the orzo wasn’t undercooked. We loved it!

  21. 5 stars
    This respite is a full out winner. Everyone liked it, my husband had leftovers for lunch the next day and I got a text raving about how good it was. A keeper for sure

  22. This was superb, and my husband even said this would be great “company dinner”.
    The feta sauce and every other ingredient was SO worth it!!! Thank you for the inspiration!!! Home Run.

    This was incredible! Shockingly easy to make for how unbelievably flavorful it was. This is definitely going into our dinner rotation. So so so good!

    Family loved this dish! I always rate the love for a dish when they want to have the leftovers the next day. Only a few thoughts – you need a total of three lemons. I used a baby (small) food processor vs. blender. Next time I’ll reduce the amount of lemon in the feta sauce just because there’s a lot of lemon going on already and I want to use up the feta sauce 😉

    1. Hi Lulu,
      Wonderful! I really appreciate you giving this recipe a try, I love to hear that it was enjoyed!! xTieghan

  25. My partner and I had friends over for dinner and I made this dish! I love Dijon so I was sold as soon as I read the title of this dish. My partner tried to convince me to not bother with the feta sauce. But I ignored him and made it and lemme tell you, all our friends commented on how delicious the sauce was!! Will totally make again, love your orzo dishes! This one might be my favorite of all the orzo dishes!

    Excellent, and quite easy to put together. The whole family loved it! It was great even without the feta sauce. One of the kids didn’t like the texture of the feta sauce–it seemed a little gritty, but maybe I didn’t keep it in the processor long enough. Awesome, solid recipe–thank you so much for sharing.

    I made this recipe tonight for dinner and it was a huge hit, will definitely make it again. The only change I made was adding more garlic than the recipe called for, with my family you can never have too much garlic! The sauce was the icing on the cake! Yummy!

    Another winner!! Followed the recipe exactly as written, but did add a bit more garlic. Prepped a lot of this in the morning, so the recipe came together quickly. I used thin sliced chicken breast and that worked out great. I would say the sauce is a must – super easy and really makes the dish!! Looking forward to the leftovers tonight!!

    This was PHENOMENAL. Easy and insanely delicious.
    We made some minor changes: 1) used only about a half of a lemon’s worth of juice in the feta sauce, as a whole lemon seemed like too much (but we had big lemons). 2) used an extra clove of garlic in both the skillet and the sauce, just because you can never have too much garlic. 3) we butterflied the chicken breasts since they were the thick Costco kind — will definitely do that again as it made them cook faster and made them extra flavorful. 4) threw in some chopped castelvetrano olives after pulling the skillet from the oven because we love olives. kalamata would be better but the castelvetrano were quite good.
    Next time, I might cut back a teensy bit on the chicken broth — the liquid cooked down/absorbed into the orzo quite a bit in the oven, but it was still a tiny bit more soupy than I wanted it to be. May try 2.5 cups of broth next time.
    Overall this was just so freakin’ good. Definitely adding to the rotation!

    I may have added a little more garlic than called for but I’m a garlic freak…
    And the feta sauce! 😲 I had leftover sauce and put it on my eggs this morning. I will now have this sauce on hand in my fridge go forward to put on everything. Thank you so much for these recipes. I have loved every one I have made 💕

  34. Hello! This recipe looks amazing. I can’t seem to find any gluten-free orzo. Is there anything else I could substitute that would be gluten-free?

    1. Hi Kiki,
      Arborio rice would be great to use in place of the orzo! Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope it turns out amazing for you! xTieghan

    1. Hi Cat,
      I would say about 1/2 cup of orzo and 1-2 pieces of chicken depending how large they are. I hope this recipe turns out amazing for you, let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    I had high hopes for this recipe, because I usually love everything from Half Baked Harvest! I’m a huge fan. I bought your latest cookbook and recommend your site all the time!
    However, I feel like this particular dish had just too much going on. The flavors seemed to compete. I think it would have been better to saute the lemons in butter by themselves, then removed them. Keeping them in made it too lemony and also they got wilty in the oven.
    Also, my family was not a big fan of the feta sauce. when prepped as the recipe said, it was too thick and chunky. So we thinned with both extra lemon juice and olive oil, but it still had a very acidic profile. Adding it just seemed to be yet another flavor to compete with all the others in this dish.
    If it didn’t have the sauce, I’d have given an extra star. I think spinach instead of kale would have been better as well. So sorry.

    When my 3, 5, and 7 year old kiddos eat every bite of a meal, it deserves 5 stars! The chicken marinade was delicious. The cooking time in the oven was spot on. Will be making this again!

    Long time follower, first time cooking a recipe. Overall we liked it. Followed the recipe to a tee but used spinach instead of kale. Chicken flavor was very tasty. I may char the lemon separately next time as it was very soft and wilty. A tad too much lemon in the main dish. The feta sauce was delicious but again too much lemon so I added some honey to adjust the taste. I also threw in some Kalamazoo olives once done for added taste. Thanks- Debbie

  39. Some times I find the lack of good directions for HBH recipes challenging. The cook has to read through all the comments to get the directions for the recipe correct. On this recipe you omit complete directions for 3. I think this is where you are expecting the lemon to carmelize. At least that was what you wrote in the comments to someone who wrote the taste was bitter. Protect your brand and make the directions complete.

    1. Hi Lisa,
      Thanks for your feedback. I am human so sometimes I might have a typo or mistake, I always try to go back and edit if necessary. For this recipe, everything is good to go! Let me know if you have any issues with it, have the best day! xTieghan

    This was SO good! I’ve made a billion(ish) of your recipes, mostly because I know they will always be delicious (and they are!), but I’ve never come back to comment on one until now! People, make this recipe. Easy, delicious, and even still great as leftovers the next day! Thanks so much!

    Made this tonight and as usual, the flavors were amazing! The feta sauce with the addition of the paprika is something I’ll be making over and over again. Served with some naan. Great weeknight dinner!

  42. Tieghan – I made this tonight and WOW it was amazing!!! So much delicious flavor. And the feta sauce… whaaaaat?? so. good. Do not, I repeat do not skip on making this sauce for the recipe!!!

    All of your recipes are sooo creative and delicious but this one was extra special. Thank you for sharing!!! 🙂

    Loved it! Lots of delicious layers of flavors from the tangy lemon, the richness of the garlic and shallots, and the bit of mustard. Surprisingly easy, and my family loved the orzo and the Feta cream sauce. I’ve been looking for an easy, no-fail recipe that is elegant enough to serve to company and this is perfect.

  44. 5 stars
    I just made the chicken part of the recipe because I can’t eat grains or dairy. I didn’t add any additional broth and thickened the remaining liquid at the end. I served it with mashed potatoes and peas. I might add capers to it next time. The chicken was delicious! Thank you!

    Really good flavor however my sauce didn’t come out as creamy as I thought it would be. Maybe it had to do with the type of feta I used. But otherwise really tasty!

    1. Hi Morgan,
      Awesome!! Thanks a bunch for trying this recipe out, I love to hear that it was a winner! Did you use block feta? That works best. xTieghan

      1. I’ll try that next time. Oh and my husband usually doesn’t like recipes I find online but he was a fan of this one!

    I made this recipe today and it was such a success! I used bone in thighs so it did require 10 more mins in the oven but turned out great. The one thing I may reconsider is cooking the lemons in before the orzo. Made the dish a touch bitter for my taste but everyone else liked it. The feta sauce was also amazing, would recommend to use as a dip for a separate event but was great to use use to even out the lemon flavor.

  48. 5 stars
    Exceptional! Good without the sauce, delicious with! I used dried rosemary & didn’t bother adding the dill. Comments were that this dinner was better than anything we had on vacation last week!

    Made this last night. Chicken was delicious but for some reason the orzo had a very bitter taste. It was the lemon slices. They tasted horrible and the flavour went into the orzo. Not sure why that happened? I had to cook my chicken breast longer as they were large and perhaps the lemon cooked too long? Not sure but unfortunately it ruined the dish.

    1. Hi Karen,
      So sorry to hear this! You really have to caramelize the lemons to ensure they don’t have a bitter taste. I hope this helps for next time! xTieghan

  53. 3 stars
    Made this dish tonight. Sorry, Tieghan, not my favorite.

    The best part for me was actually the orzo, although it was a bit too liquidy. Even though I only seared the chicken 4 min per side and then baked in the oven according to directions, it was tough and chewy (overdone).

    I first made the feta sauce according to directions and it was way too thick. Instead of adding more lemon juice, I added small amounts of water, because when I tasted the sauce, it was already very lemony tasting.

    I also thought this recipe had too many shallots in it – and I like shallots!

  54. 5 stars
    I made this tonight. So YUM and flavorful!!💯 Hubby loved it too! So many layers of flavor! I made it just as the recipe said. I used organic wheat orzo & chicken breasts. Lemons…a must! The feta…a must! Yes, dill…a must!Dont skip on the garlic either. Loved the kale too. Everything a must! Thanks Tiegan!!😘🥰

      Made this last night. Loved the flavor but next time I might add in just one tablespoon of lemon juice as my lemon was more on the large size. It was also a little soupy but we like it like that, with a lot of sauce!

    Delicious lemony dish & flavors! The smoked paprika is a great addition! Tips: Chopping, prepping and measuring ingredients upfront made this so simple and quick. Also, I left the feta sauce chunky (whipped with a fork) and will use the recipe for a veggie platter dip in the future!

    I made this last night, it was very tasty. I added a tad more lemon juice to my feta sauce to make it a bit more runny…the combo of flavors combined is mouth watering! Highly recommend 🙌🏼

    Sooo delicious. I love that I finished in the oven so I could prep everything else. I ended up halving the recipe (didn’t have enough orzo) but made the same amount of feta sauce and plan on using as a yummy dip!

        This is my favorite recipe I’ve tried so far from HBH (and that’s saying a lot because they’re all just so incredible). My husband and I moved closer to my family recently and this was the first meal we served my parents in our new home—it was a HUGE hit for everyone! We served it with some olive bread that we picked up from The Fresh Market. I could see why some reviews mentioned too much lemon. If you don’t love a lot of lemon you can tone that down a bit, maybe less in the feta sauce would be a good fix. But we all really enjoyed the citrusy flavors as is. Don’t skimp on the fresh dill either, it added a great flavor when sprinkled over at the end. I’m so thankful for this site for inspiring me to get creative in the kitchen!

    Made this tonight and it was Amazing! Thank you for the recipe it will be added to the rotation. The first bite was unexpectedly tart … but when you keep *devouring* it ….. it mellows out.

    I found this delicious and comforting. My hubby isn’t a fan of feta, so next time I’ll just crumble some on top and forgo the sauce. I’ll definitely add this to our rotation.

    This was delicious! The seasonings were perfect – rosemary, lemon, dill. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts. And, took the lazy way out with just crumbled fresh feta instead of the sauce. Will try the sauce next time. Agree with the suggestion to add the extra lemon juice to the list of ingredients. Had a bottle in the refrig which worked great. Loved the one pan cooking. Loving your recipes. Highly recommend this one. Thank you!

  68. Made this tonight—-fantastic!!!
    Directions are great, I went lighter on the shallots because I don’t like them still plenty of flavor!!! Definitely recommend!!

  69. 5 stars
    This was fabulous! Took more like 5 min to toast the orzo. The ingredients didn’t note lemon juice for the chicken part (and I only had 2 lemons), so you might want to add lemon juice to the main ingredients. So good!

  70. 5 stars
    You had me with the title. Anything with lemon, Dijon and chicken! Add in the feta sauce and it takes it to another level. Amazing. I used ditalini because I was out of Orza. It was a decent substitute but will definitely make it again with Orzo!

  71. 5 stars
    Made this last night and it was so freaking good!! My husband loved it too. The feta sauce was a great addition and the orzo cooked perfectly!

  72. I just made this last night – fabulous flavors. One question. The instructions say to “Slide the chicken, lemon slices, and any juices left on the pan back into the skillet. Bake, uncovered for 15 minutes or until the chicked is cooked through.”
    The cook time on the top of the receipe shows 40 minutes. I had to cook in the oven, at 400 degrees, for 45 minutes. Is the 15 minutes a typo?

    Thank you,

    Fran

    1. Hi Fran,
      Wow! You definitely should not have had to bake in the oven for 45 minutes, that seems extremely long. What kind of chicken did you use? Let me know how I can help! xTieghan

  73. 5 stars
    I made this for dinner for me and my husband last night and it was delicious – so flavorful! And it came together super easily, which is always nice on a weeknight after a long day. I like that the chicken didn’t have to marinate in the mustard-shallot mixture, just toss it together and throw it in the pan! And the feta sauce adds so much to the finished dish – it gave it a smoky flavor from the paprika that put it over the top! By the time I got to making the feta sauce, I was ready to be done and didn’t want to fiddle with (and have to clean) an appliance, so I didn’t even put it in the blender, just mashed up the feta a little with a fork, and it was perfect! The chicken was tender and juicy, the orzo was cooked perfectly and the bits on top and around the edges that got a little crispy are so good! Thank you, we will definitely be making this recipe again!

    Yumm this was so good with so much depth of flavor from browning the chicken in the pot then cooking the orzo in it. Made in my lodge cast iron and used 3 lbs chicken thighs because that’s what my packages came out to. Feta sauce was amazing. Will make again!

    The flavor of this is GREAT, but boy did it make a MESS. For a 1 skillet dish i felt like there were too many ingredients for my le crouset cast iron (standard size that I am assuming recipe calls for). 2lb of chicken barely fit, and then definitely did not fit once orzo and broth needed to be in there. Ended up doing half in the cast iron and another 50% in ceramic bakeware dish. Also the splatter is insane. whole stovetop needed to be cleaned. But in-spite of any of that, flavor is 5-starts. We also added some pine nuts

  84. The feta is amazing. I’m going to be eating it with everything. Pita chips and feta or toasted baguette too. So good.

  85. Was the orzo suppose to be cooked before putting it in the oven? Mine was still crunchy after 20 minutes in the over…

        1. Hi Pat,
          You are going to need the broth to cook the orzo. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try! xTieghan

    1. Hi Sydney,
      Sorry to hear this. Did you bring the orzo to a boil before adding the chicken back in? It should then fully cook in the oven. Let me know how I can help! xTieghan

    Made this tonight and it was delicious! One comment I am wondering why no one seems to do, maybe it’s just a me problem! But I would benefit from the measurements being in the method, so when it would say add 2 tblsp of oil, 2 cups of broth etc instead of having scroll up and down while cooking.

    My husband ate kale!!!!! Red letter day. Made recipe as written only reducing the garlic a bit for my garlic adverse husband. Used thighs-deboned and skinned them. The recipe came together as written and within the times given. If you prep ahead, the dish comes together easily. Had some fresh feta from a cheese shop here and it was perfect for an incredible sauce that worked well just scooping it out with my finger. No changes, it was delish just the way it was written. Definitely a company meal.

  93. Here the thing. I freaking LOVE every. Single. Thing. You. Make. The problem is that it’s SO hard to save your recipes via Instagram/ then through Pinterest. Maybe I’m doing it wrong!! But i want to save basically everything but it never allows me! It’s so frustrating bc I want to make ALL of your recipes!!!!! Thank you for all that you are doing!!

    1. Hi Abbey,
      So to save my recipes on Pinterest, you simply click on a photo and the Pinterest “save” button will appear. To save a photo on IG, you just click the flag button. You can also create a recipe box on the blog and save recipes there. There’s lots of options and ways to save recipes. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  94. This was awesome! I did another pan of it with snapper and just cooked it with the scallions and garlic and lemon and didn’t add it back to the pan until after the orzo/kale came out of the oven. And the feta sauce was a must. Good on raw veggies too 🙂

    1. Hi Kathleen,
      Goat or ricotta cheese would both be great options. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

  95. Hello! This looks amazing! I want to try it! There are no lemons where i am from, can i use limes?
    And what can i use instead of kale?
    Thanks!!

    1. Not sure about the limes…that might make this dish a little funky. Tieghan…what do you think? As for the kale, you could substitute baby spinach.

      1. 5 stars
        I ended up using lime but skipped the part where you cook the slices and it worked! And i used spinach, thanks melanie!

    2. Hi Milena,
      If you do limes, I would probably reduce the amount you use, just due to the flavor. You can use spinach in place of the kale. I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

        I just made this recipe tonight, and it’s another winner!! Very straightforward and incredibly flavorful.

        I didn’t have kale, so I substituted spinach. I also had some white wine in the fridge that I didn’t want to go bad, (hate throwing out wine!) so I subbed one cup of broth for one cup of wine.

    This dish and the feta sauce are soOoOo GOOD!! I followed the recipe except I…
    -Browned the chicken breasts for longer than 5 minutes (the chicken was thick so I wanted to make sure they had more cooking time)
    -Substituted shallots with red onions (I didn’t have shallots)
    -Substituted fresh rosemary with dried rosemary, but reduced it by 1/2
    -Substituted orzo with penne (I didn’t have orzo). Since penne is bigger, I used more chicken stock to cover/cook the pasta in the cast iron skillet.

    We had this for dinner and as leftovers for lunch the next day — still delicious! It’s an explosion of flavor and the kale adds a nice texture to the bite!

    1. Hi Mindy,
      Happy Friday!! Love hearing that you enjoy this recipe, I so appreciate you giving it a try! Thanks for sharing what worked well for you. xxT

  97. Do you think it would be possible to sub cumin for the paprika and red pepper flakes ? I can’t have nightshades , therefore no pepper derived spices ….

    1. Hi Kelli,
      Yes, that will be fine to do. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

  98. This sounds delicious! How thick of chicken breasts do you recommend using? I’ve been having issues with my chicken taking waaaay longer than recipes say. Thanks!

    1. When my chicken breasts are too thick, I slice them in half. Put them in the freezer first for about 20 min so they’re easier to slice.

    2. Hi Shannon,
      You can use chicken breasts or thighs for this recipe, I would just make sure they aren’t super thick, you can always pound them out a bit. Let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

    We made this last night for dinner and it was DELICIOUS! The orzo was the best – soaking up all of the different flavors while cooking. The feta sauce put it over the top. We used spinach instead of kale – so yummy! Thanks for the great recipe!

      1. Hi Kristin,
        Sorry, I have nor tried this with a whole chicken, it would obviously take much longer to cook and would probably affect the outcome of the orzo. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hi Nancy,
      You will just need to increase your cooking time until your chicken reaches an internal temp 160F. Yes, a dutch oven will work. I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

    1. That is all I had on hand and made it the same as written except I increased the oven time a bit since the pieces were thicker with the bone. Turned out great!

    2. Hi Kaitlyn,
      You would just need to increase your cooking time until your chicken thighs are cooked through. I hope you love the dish, let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    I made this tonight and it was delicious! All of the flavors complimented each other so well. It was not at all heavy, just really fresh yet filling.

    Saw this and was inspired for dinner tonight – made a half recipe with 2 boneless porkchops, frozen spinach, and rice because that’s what I had. Skipped the lemon juice since I didn’t see it in the ingredients but the lemon slices alone added plenty of lemony flavor to the finished dish. It was fantastic! Lovely flavors – doesn’t taste at all like mustard for the mustard phobic like me, just rich and delicious and easy. I finished it on the stove instead of the oven so I could watch the rice and the consistency was perfect after the 15 minutes. Topped it with just the feta to save time which was plenty delightful. Point being, the technique and flavors are spot on!

  106. I don’t see where it says how much lemon juice to add to the orzo with the broth and Kale. I see it listed for the Feta Sauce only. Is it the juice of one lemon also? Thanks!

    1. Hi Jennifer,
      You will want to use 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in step 4. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

  107. I’ve made multiple recipes of yours! Every single one we have tried has been amazing. I made this tonight for my boyfriend and I and loved it! The only thing I did differently was use spinach instead of kale.

    1. Hey Britt,
      Sure, sour cream would work well for you. Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

  108. This recipe looks so yummy! I was wondering if I could use my Instant Pot for this, and if so how would I cook it? Thank you for all your wonderful recipes!!

    1. Hey Michelle,
      So sorry, I have not tested that with this recipe. It could work, but you need to test the times of cooking and things. I would follow my directions for stove-top, but cooking in the instant pot. Then get everything in and seal the lid, cook 7 minutes. I hope this helps! xTieghan

  109. I noticed that you are supposed to add lemon juice with the broth and kale while cooking the orzo. The ingredient list mentions 1 lemon sliced, but does not say anything about lemon juice.

    The feta sauce ingredients lists juice from one lemon, but that is for the sauce. So excited to make this tonight!

    1. Hi Katie,
      You will want to use 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  110. Add broth, kale & lemon juice, but I only see a sliced lemon and then juice of a lemon for the feta sauce. Maybe no lemon juice with the broth?
    Can’t wait to try it! Making my 4th HBH recipe this week tonight! All yummm!
    Thank you!

  111. I know Dijon is in the name of the recipe…but if I’m not a huge Dijon fan and love the rest of the recipe, is there a different sauce/ingredient I can swap with the Dijon that compliments the other ingredients in the recipe?

      1. I wondered about adding “lemon juice” to the orzo too. The cooking process above the recipe doesn’t mention “lemon juice” and the Ingredients don’t include it either. With this in mind, the lemon slices in the orzo aught to do.

        1. Hi Brian,
          You will want to use 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in step 4. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xT

      I looked at her other, similar recipe and she recommended basmati rice (which would take longer to cook than orzo, obviously) and/or any short-cut GF pasta! Hope that helps 🙂

        This recipe is AMAZING! I made this gluten free with the Banza rice, since it has an orzo consistency, and it was fantastic!

        1. Hi Kristina,
          Wonderful! I really appreciate you giving this recipe a try, I love to hear that it was enjoyed!! xTieghan

    2. Hi Melissa,
      Yes, rice will work for you, it will just take longer to cook:) Please let me know if you give the recipe a try, I hope you love it! xTieghan

    1. Hi Brenda,
      You are just going to bring it to a boil, once at the boil then add in the chicken and follow the instructions from there. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    1. Hi Marilyn,
      To be quite honest, this probably isn’t a dish that I would recommend freezing. The orzo would probably get mushy and the chicken dry from reheating. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan
