Chicken Roulades with Sun-Dried Tomato & Feta Orzo

Saturday, 26 October 2013 08:02  by Mitzi.

Orzo, though much like rice in appearance, is actually a type of small Italian pasta. Served alongside chicken and topped with sun-dried tomatoes, it makes a flavorful and filling meal. To put this all together, boil the orzo before making the chicken roulades and finish adding tomatoes and feta while the chicken finishes simmering.

Ingredients | Chicken Roulades

  • 3 tablespoons fresh breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons minced oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 oz. each), trimmed of fat
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • 1 ¾ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
