1

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Add 6 cups water and 1 tsp salt to a medium pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, core, then cut pepper into 1-inch pieces. Peel, then cut half the onion into 1-inch pieces (use all for 4 ppl). Halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut into 1/4inch half-moons.

2

Pat chicken dry with paper towels, then cut into 1-inch pieces on a separate cutting board. Add chicken, peppers, zucchini, onions, chicken salt and 2 tbsp oil to an unlined baking sheet. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, divide chicken and veggies between 2 baking sheets, using 2 tbsp oil per sheet.)Season with pepper, then toss to combine. Arrange chicken and veggies in a single layer.

3

Roast in middle of the oven, stirring halfway through, until veggies are tender and chicken is cooked through, 16-18 min.**(NOTE: For 4 ppl, roast in the top and middle of the oven, rotating sheets halfway through.)

4

Meanwhile, add orzo to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8-10 min. Reserve 1/4 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain orzo and return to the same pot, off heat.

5

Add half the reserved pasta water, broth concentrate and sun-dried tomato pesto to the pot with orzo. Season with pepper, to taste, then stir to combine. (TIP: For a lighter sauce consistency, add more reserved pasta water, 1-2 tbsp at a time, if desired.) Cover to keep warm.

6

Divide sun-dried tomato orzo between bowls. Top with chicken and veggies. Sprinkle Parmesan over top.
