Kayelle’s Greek Thighs
 
Kayelle’s Greek Thighs with Orzo and Lemon.


By request..
This is a delicious and easy skillet to oven dish. I use my high sided sauté pan. To duplicate this you will need Cavender’s all purpose Greek seasoning, easily found in grocery stores, and fresh lemons.
https://s31.postimg.org/uwsyyl2nv/15692_XXX_v1.jpg
4-6 chicken thighs, (bone in skin on)
2 cups Orzo
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
2-3 teaspoons of Cavenders Greek seasoning
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 thinly sliced lemon

Season the thighs with Cavender’s seasoning, and brown in a large skillet. Remove the chicken and pour off the grease being careful to save the fond on the bottom. Add the orzo along with the broth and lemon juice, scraping up the bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the 2-3 teaspoons of Cavenders, along with the parsley and float the browned thighs on top, tucking in the lemon slices.
Transfer the skillet to a pre heated 375 degree oven for 30-40 min.
We like spinach salad on the side.

Just checked my grocery stores availability and they carry Cavender’s all purpose Greek seasoning. Went onto my list.

Thank you. On tonight's menu.

Awesome recipe! I'm going to try this recipe for my father this weekend when I go visit him. He's Greek and loves chicken thighs.

Whiskadoodle 03-22-2018 01:21 PM

This recipe has mouth watering deliciousness written all over it.

Thanks, Kayelle

It looks like an easy, inexpensive, healthy, Ta-dah recipe!

I love a meal that goes into the oven while I put my feet up and enjoy a relaxing drink! :ermm::ohmy::lol:

I can vouch for this! :yum:

I made Kay's Greek Inspired Chicken Thighs last week and it was delicious. The proportions of seasoning, orzo, broth, and oven timing was spot on - and when I stirred up the orzo for plating, it fluffed up perfectly. Will definitely make this again!

GotGarlic 03-22-2018 05:40 PM

This sounds, and looks, like a wonderful dish. I'll definitely be making it soon :yum:

Thanks for the nice comments all!

The recipe is obviously easy to break down and reduce the servings, but the leftovers are really good too.
I'm thinking it would also be great with fish. Without skillet browning the fish, the fish and orzo would be oven done in 15-20 minutes I would think.
I love the mouth feel of the orzo made that way, and I'll make it that way again as a side for another protein.

Howzabout b/s chicken thighs and Meyer Lemons KL?
Would you figure 15-20 minutes for those too, after a quick browning?

Boneless, skinless thighs would work if that's all you have. Yep, I'd figure 15-20 for those.

Sounds delicious. I'll plan to make these next week after a visit to the market.

On a side note....:rolleyes:

I'm surprised that Bucky hasn't come around to ask about Kayelle's Greek arms and shoulders. Just sayin'!:rofl:

tenspeed 03-22-2018 06:58 PM

Made it tonight. Great stuff! Thanks for posting this.

Next time, I'll reduce the orzo and broth by a third, though (and I thought it would be too much). Too much left over.

I can't help thinking that Kayelle's Greek Thighs should be followed with a dessert of Schweddy Balls. :lol:

For those not familiar, one of the top ten funniest SNL sketches of all time.

CD :biggrin:

That was one of the funniest bits ever done by Saturday Night Live!! No matter how many times I view it, I laugh until I nearly hurt.

msmofet 03-23-2018 12:53 PM

I’ll have to make it with bone in/skin on chicken breasts.

Yeah, I am amazed that they did it without any of them breaking character and laughing.

Ms. Mofet's skinny Greek breasts. Interesting.
