Step three: Bake

Cover the skillet with a lid and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the orzo is done and the chicken is cooked through. The chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 180°F.

Step four: Serve

Remove the skillet from the oven and remove the lid. Fluff the orzo and vegetables. Serve the Lemon Chicken and Orzo right in the skillet for a true one-pan, oven-to-table meal.
