Lemon Orzo Recipe

This Lemon Orzo is a quick and easy one-pot recipe that's perfect as a side dish or even as a light main course.

With bright lemon flavor, creamy parmesan cheese, and thyme seasoning, this dish is sure to become a family favorite.


• Butter • Garlic • Chicken Broth • Orzo Pasta • Dried Thyme • Lemon • Parmesan Cheese

Start by melting the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Toss in the minced garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 30 seconds.


Next, pour in the chicken broth and orzo, then stir in the dried thyme, lemon juice, and lemon zest.


Give it a good stir, then cover and let it simmer for 4-5 minutes until it starts to thicken.


You'll know it's ready when the bubbles get slower and thicker before they pop. Now, take off the lid and reduce the heat to medium-low.


Keep stirring, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pan, until all the liquid is absorbed and the orzo is al dente, which takes about 3-4 minutes.
