Grilled Chicken and Lemon Orzo Salad
The perfect packable summertime pasta salad: Grilled Chicken and Lemon Orzo Salad!
Summertime was made for pasta salads. Easy to tote to a picnic or backyard gathering, they’re our one-bowl-meal kind of friend.
I started making this Grilled Chicken and Lemon Orzo Salad early this past spring, while our girls were still in school. The salad turned out to be a bigger hit than I was anticipating, with them wanting to pack it in their lunch bags every single day for a week at a time. They never tired of it. It’s just that lovely.
If I can incorporate grilling into every single meal of the summer, I certainly will. This recipe includes the grilling of two different ingredients: lemon halves and chicken. The grilling adds another layer of flavor that makes this chicken and lemon orzo salad just that much more irresistible.
I created this recipe for the Food & Friends section on The Pioneer Woman’s site where I’m a contributor. To read the full post and grab the RECIPE for my Grilled Chicken and Lemon Orzo Salad, just click here!
