Prepare the Ingredients
Mince dill, leaves and stems.
Zest lemon, halve, and juice.
Pat chicken thighs dry, and season all over with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.
Cook the Chicken
Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add chicken to hot pan and stir occasionally until chicken is lightly browned and reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.
Remove chicken to a plate. Keep pan on burner and raise heat to medium-high.
Start the Orzo
Add 2½ cups water, chicken demi-glace, 1 tsp. lemon zest, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, add orzo. Stir occasionally until tender and water is almost completely evaporated, 12-15 minutes.
If water evaporates before orzo is tender, add another ¼ cup water.
Finish the Orzo
Stir chicken and spinach into hot pan. Cook until spinach is wilted, 1-2 minutes.
Remove from burner. Stir in 1 Tbsp lemon juice, butter, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper until melted and combined.
Finish the Dish
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping chicken and orzo with feta, crispy red peppers, and dill. Bon appétit!
