Lemon Chicken with Kalamata Olives

Lemon Chicken with Kalamata Olives

This dinner was quick and easy and if you love lemons, you'll enjoy the flavor of this dish.  The only thing I thought I had in my "pasta parade" was orzo but I did not so I substituted a smaller type pasta... it worked!

The ingredients-only 6!

Brown chicken

 Add remaining ingredients to a 2 quart casserole dish and place chicken on top and sprinkle with S&P

Pretend I'm Orzo

John gave this dish 3.5 stars - he said he would have given it 4 but there were too many olives for his taste!
