There’s a lot of yes going on here. Juicy, golden-brown chicken thighs are seared and perfectly cooked over creamy orzo and topped with fresh cherry tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese. It’s an all-in-one meal made in one pot and super quick to clean up, making it a weeknight blessing.

Not to mention the veggies (spinach and kale) that help you get your daily veggie intake. With some crusty bread, a glass of wine, and a few sprinkles of fresh herbs, this is my go-to meal throughout January. New year, new you. It’s very cozy, very filling, and very delicious.

Tools used for this recipe

Can I use chicken breast?

Yes, you can use chicken breasts here, but chicken thighs are darker and have more fat, resulting in juicier, more flavorful chicken.

Can I use fresh herbs instead?

absolutely! However, less is needed when using dried herbs, as they are often more potent and concentrated than fresh herbs. The correct ratio is 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs to 1 teaspoon of dried herbs.

  • 1 1/2 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, taste
  • 2 tablespoon Unsalted butter
  • 2 big shallot, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tea spoon dried oregano
  • ¾ tea spoon dry virile
  • 1/2 tea spoon dried paprika
  • 1/2 tea spoon dried dill
  • 1/4 tea spoon drying thyme
  • tea spoon cinnamon powder
  • 2 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 3 cup chicken soup
  • 1 cup orzo pasta
  • 3 cup chopped baby spinach
  • 2 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
