Chicken Piccata over Herbed Orzo with Arugula
In Italy, piccata is typically made with veal, but it’s most commonly served as a chicken dish in the States. The word “piccata” refers to the particular preparation of the dish, which involves searing the meat and serving it with a sauce made with lemon and butter. It’s paired with a bed of orzo, which is a rice-shaped pasta that cooks into a creamy texture similar to risotto ( without all the work of stirring!) and is perfect for soaking up any extra sauce.
