This One Pot Lemon Chicken and Thyme Orzo is made using very few ingredients, it is super quick to make and it is a dish that everyone will enjoy.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C/Gas Mark 6.
Heat the oil in a large oven proof pot (I use a cast iron pan).
Season the chicken and add to the oil. Sear for 3 - 5 minutes per side. Remove from the pot and set aside.
Add the butter to the pan, once melted add lemon slices to the same pot and sear for 1 minute each side. Remove and set aside.
Stir in the garlic and cook for a minute before adding the orzo. Pour in the chicken stock and lemon juice and zest after 2 minutes.
Bring to a boil over high heat and slowly add the chicken, lemon slices, chilli flakes and thyme to the pot.
Pop the pot into the oven for 20 - 25 minutes. Check if the orzo and chicken are cooked and remove from the oven.
