Adventures of Eating with dReJ: healthy, cheap, delicious

Quick Link:

Quick and easy for dinner time

Total: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup orzo, 1 cutlet, and 2 tablespoons sauce)


  • 1  cup  uncooked orzo
  • 2  teaspoons  grated lemon rind
  • 4  (4-ounce) chicken cutlets (we just used chicken breasts here)
  • 1/4  teaspoon  kosher salt (again, just regular salt for us)
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1/4  cup  white wine
  • 1/2  cup  fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
  • 1  tablespoon  fresh lemon juice
  • 1  tablespoon  chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped fresh parsley
  • 1  tablespoon  capers

dReJ Say: It’s hard to go wrong with Chicken Piccata. Don’t go overboard on portions here if you don’t stick with the cutlet size! Capers are delicious – if you haven’t ever had them, go for it. I used to think they were scary seafood. Man, i was wrong 😉 They are like lemony goodness. Perfect in this pasta dish. Capers can be found with the canned olives in your  grocery store.

Orzo is a super easy pasta to make. But of course if you want – pick a different pasta to serve this with.
