Method

Step 1
In a 6 to 8-quart pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
Step 2
Add chicken pieces and salt to taste; cook, stirring often, until chicken is lightly browned but not completely cooked in center, about 3 minutes.
Step 3
With a slotted spoon transfer chicken to a bowl or plate and set aside.
Step 4
To the pan add broth, orzo, lemon peel, and lemon juice.
Step 5
Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
Step 6
Reduce heat and boil gently until orzo is tender to bite, about 10 minutes.
Step 7
Return chicken to the pan and simmer just until meat is no longer pink in the center (cut to test), about 7-10 minutes (making sure the internal temperature is at least 165 degree Fahrenheit.)
Step 8
Off the heat, stir in half and half and the basil.
Step 9
Spoon into individual bowls and serve.
