You are going to love this Greek Lemon Chicken Skillet recipe.  It's truly a one-pan dinner, with chicken, orzo pasta and vegetables all cooking together in one skillet.  Brown the chicken to kick-start the flavor in the skillet, then simmer the orzo in chicken broth and cream of chicken soup- the orzo absorbs the flavor as it cooks!  Lemon and oregano add a Greek-inspired twist.  Serve this Greek Lemon Chicken Skillet sprinkled with some crumbled feta as a finishing touch!


  • 1 1/4 pounds thin-sliced skinless boneless chicken breast halves
  • 2 teaspoons salt-free lemon pepper seasoning (amount divided in recipe steps below)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
  • 3 cups Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Broth or water
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or Heart Healthy Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 4 cups fresh spinach (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 cup halved grape tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


  • Tips

    • This one-pan dish is also great made with rice!  Substitute 1 cup uncooked long-grain white rice for the orzo, and cook until the rice is tender.
  • Step 1

    Season the chicken with 1 teaspoon lemon pepper.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until well browned and done.  Remove the chicken from the skillet, cover and keep warm.

  • Step 2

    Add the onion to the skillet and cook for 5 minutes or until tender-crisp.  Stir in the oregano and remaining 1 teaspoon lemon pepper.

  • Step 3

    Add the uncooked orzo.  Stir in the broth and soup and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet.  Reduce the heat to medium. Cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes or until the orzo is tender and the sauce is thickened, stirring often.  Stir in the spinach, tomatoes and lemon juice.  Season with salt and pepper.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Sprinkle with the feta.  Serve with lemon wedges on the side, if desired.
