  1. 1

    Start the Orzo

    Once water is boiling, add orzo and stir occasionally until soft, 7-8 minutes. Reserve 1 cup orzo cooking water. Strain orzo and set aside. While orzo cooks, cook zucchini.

    Cook the Zucchini and Chicken

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Finely chop zucchini. Add zucchini to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add ground chicken. Break up chicken until no pink remains and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

    Finish the Orzo

    Add butter, lemon juice, seasoning blend, mirepoix base, and reserved orzo water to hot pan. Stir constantly until combined and thickened, 2-3 minutes. Stir in orzo and Parmesan until combined.
