I love this dish! This dish is chicken thighs baked in the oven,served over orzo and topped with a lemon and artichoke sauce. I added frozen peas to the orzo while it was cooking just to add some more vegetables. When the orzo was done I just sauteed some garlic in a bit of olive oil and butter and then threw the orzo back in the pot and added salt, pepper and parmigiana cheese. Top the orzo with the chicken thighs and pour on this great sauce made with lemon juice, chicken broth and a can of artichokes. Enjoy!
