Lemon Pan-Seared Chicken with Buttered Orzo (& a Pioneer Woman Giveaway!)

Print Friendly

I’m not actually giving REE away, you guys. Marlboro Man would haaave myyyy hiiiiide.

But I do have a little sumpin’ sumpin’ to BUTTER YOU UP, OMG I sure did just say that.

But wait! Chill your cheelah because I actually DO want to talk about this butter for a smidge. Wow, I just got knocked to the back of the room from the air generated from your eye roll.

Early last week I participated in a little Land O’ Lakes butter webinar that Ree hosted, where we listened to her talk about the hows, whys and the how oftens (duh) of using butter, complete with a power point presentation and butter TIDBITS. I get excited about these things.

 

At the end of the prez, about 25 bloggers had the chance to ask Ree questions about butter, or in my case, sing to her. I MEAN WOULD YOU EXPECT ANY LESS?

She’s not spoken to me since.

So to keep IN THE SPIRIT (I’ve got some serious jazz hands goin’ on right now, you guys) of the giveaway, I decided I would cook with it first so that I could give a full report on where I stand in this world we live in.

The new butter comes with olive oil and sea salt, which to me is like angels partying on your tongue. I mean, they could cover me from head to toe in this stuff and stick me in a wax museum and then when the places closes for the night, I’d lick it off clean and beg to do it all again for a month straight.

 

They also come in little half bars of 4 Tbs., which is perfect because that’s just the size of a lipstick so you can easily apply as needed.

What?

I decided that I should most definitely use all 4 Tbs. to REALLY test it out and get the full effect. Quality control, yo.

So I went simple, with garlicky, lemony pan-seared chicken thighs over buttery orzo. And some wilted arugula and toasted pine nuts to tie it up in a little bow. A little butter bow.

 

Seriously. I mean I COULD NOT MOVE. I’m going to use 4 Tbs. of butter in every single thing from now on for the rest of my live long days.

Okay fine I’ll get to the giveaway.

SO, what we have here is the “Ree’s Cooking Essentials” kit, complete with her two (signed!) cookbooks, some buttah, and 3 of her favorite kitchen utensils. I’m super excited about that flat whisk! I can’t wait to sing into it like a microphone and annoy the tar out of my husband.

To enter, all ya gerts-ta-dew is answer me this one question: In high school, did you curl, tease or crimp your bangs?

And of course, for extra entries, you can always:

* Like Bev Cooks on the Facebooks and lemme know

* Follow @bevcooks on the Twitters and lemme know

* Follow Bev Cooks on the Pinterest and lemme know

* Follow Bev Cooks on the Instagrams and lemme know

**This giveaway will close Monday evening at 6pm, CST, and is limited to US residents only. I will announce the winner Tuesday morning. Thank ya!**

 **Also, I was not compensated for this post, other than the same kit one of you shall receive. All opinions expressed are my own, dudes.**

And oh yeah, here’s the recipe!

Lemon Pan-Seared Chicken with Buttered Orzo:

What it took for 2:

* 4 Tbs. Land o’ Lakes Butter (with olive oil and sea salt), divided
* 2 cloves garlic, minced
* 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
* 2 lemons
* 2 cups arugula
* 1 cup orzo
* 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
* coarse salt and pepper

Melt 2 Tbs. butter in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.

Add the garlic and bloom 30 seconds. Nestle the chicken in the pan with the garlic, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Slice one lemon and stick it all in with the chicken. Sear the chicken on both sides until cooked through and browned all over. It should take 10-12 minutes total. With the heat at a medium, the garlic should’t burn on you, braising in the lemon juice and butter. But if it does, I’m sorry. I actually like burned garlic.

CONTINUING ON.

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the orzo until al dente. Drain and return to the pot. Add the two remaining Tbs. butter, arugula and cheese to the pot. Stir to combine. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Serve chicken over a bed of orzo. And that other lemon? Have it on hand to squeeze all over the plated dishes.

YES.

    Did none of the above, taped them down so they would not curl up.

  2. Beth June 15, 2012 at 8:32 am #

    I straightened them. No matter what the hairstyle.

  3. Pammela June 15, 2012 at 8:37 am #

    Curl! I had the big bump on your head bangs!

    I curled them, Farrah Fawcett style! Great recipe, by the way. Can’t wait to try it!

    Curled them under with curling iron. Went to school plenty of times with burns on my forehead!! :-/

  11. Tracey E. June 15, 2012 at 8:53 am #

    PS: on Facebook, (Tracey Evans) look at my Vintage photos and you will see some teased bangs. :)

  12. Jessica June 15, 2012 at 8:57 am #

    Well to be honest I had that naturally curly/frizzy red hair thing going on. So obviously I curled those bangs for an hour every morning. I rocked it…or so I thought.

    I already follow you…on EVERYTHING!

  13. Alexa June 15, 2012 at 8:57 am #

    I didn’t have bangs in high school, so none of the above! That was probably one of the smartest decisions I made during those 4 years. :)

  14. Shaina June 15, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    I didn’t have bangs in high school. There was no curling, teasing, nor crimping to be had. Also, I went to high school after all those had gone out of style, which may have had something to do with it.

  15. Pam D June 15, 2012 at 8:58 am #

    I did curl them. There is an embarrassing 8th grade photo of me with a curlicue on the left side. I didn’t keep doing that but I did curl them. Now this was the sixties, guys.

  16. Kendra June 15, 2012 at 8:59 am #

    I’m an 80’s girl so tease all the way!!! The real question is – how high were your bangs? :)

  17. Marsha June 15, 2012 at 8:59 am #

    It was the early 80’s so I did the curl with the curling iron so they were a nice little row above my eyebrow! If the cut was a little short, I looked like Maime Eisenhower!! YIKES!!!

  18. Juli B. June 15, 2012 at 8:59 am #

    I curled my bangs…….Had the Farrah Fawcett wanna be haircut with “wings”…….

  29. Allison June 15, 2012 at 9:14 am #

  51. Brandy Lewis June 15, 2012 at 9:38 am #

    Tried crimped, that didn’t work out real good, tried curled, ended up burning my forehead so that was out, by my senior year they were pulled back with a clip just to keep them out of my face. :)

  52. Darcy June 15, 2012 at 9:40 am #

    I didn’t have bangs in high school (I know, sad) but today my forehead is properly covered with big ‘ol jumbo curled bangs that are pushed strategically to the side.

  55. The Home Cook June 15, 2012 at 9:54 am #

    No bangs in high school but I did tease them in middle school. That big swoop that was oh-so-popular.

  68. Heather June 15, 2012 at 10:32 am #

    ugh, i thought i had pushed my bangs out of my brain for FOREVAH…but now that you bring them up i tried to curl them under with a curling iron and would subsequently get pissed every morning that they wouldn’t look perfect. damn cowlick ;)

  73. Shelley June 15, 2012 at 10:42 am #

    I had bangs well past when they were cool (i.e. from age 3 until age 17… I KNOW.) And from 5th grade through 11th grade, I curled them. They were a masterpiece by the time I got to high school. Water was the enemy of my carefully sculpted bangs.

    Oh, sorry, you didn’t need that much info. Well there ya go. And I followed you on Twitter!

  74. Noelle June 15, 2012 at 10:44 am #

    Oh geez…I have super curly hair, but I used to blow just my bangs out in that half curl up, then half curl down thing. Know what I’m talking about? Yeeeaahhh…I was not part of the popular club.

    I did not do anything to my hair in high school (besides let it air dry), but I should have gone without bangs, because they always naturally curled straight out.

    My Bangs? They were as straight as a board. I cut them myself, and as I think Back, what a disaster I caused to the hair on my head!! lol…
    And I didn’t even like them, I just felt like I had a big forehead at the time…. now I realize how rediculious that sounds, because I don’t! Man, gotta love those days!

Anyways, I know I owned a crimper but I think I was also a teaser. I think I did a little of everything; my hair was all over the place. Actually it still is. :)

    Sadly, I didn’t have bangs in high school. But, I was always envious of the “claw” style that my cousin achieved with hers. Think heavy metal bands. Kind of curled, but half one way and half the other. I think you get the picture.

  127. Ashley June 15, 2012 at 12:57 pm #

    I crimped and curled… What a mess it was. My high school pictures are more than a smidge cringeworthy.

      Hi, Jen!

      Yep, you can just toast them in a toaster oven or in a small skillet. Mine don’t look THAT toasted. I was impatient. And starving. They toast up pretty quickly so keep an eye on them, as they cost a hundred million dollars. And then yes, just sprinkle them on the plated dish. UGH, so good.

    I avoided bangs at all cost in high school. But in middle school I curled and then teased – it as awesome!

    Oh I teased them and used a blow dryer to give them that extra height. It was something special. I also followed you on Pinterest and Twitter. :) I am already following you on facebook which is how I saw this post :)

  139. Jenny June 15, 2012 at 1:21 pm #

    I curled, baby!

  141. Brenda June 15, 2012 at 1:40 pm #

    My hair has always been au naturel. No curling, crimping, straightening.

  142. Cookie and Kate June 15, 2012 at 2:05 pm #

    Fortunately, I did not have bangs in high school. My hair was just a frizzy mess in a pony tail… sadly it’s not any different today. urggg

  143. Stephanie June 15, 2012 at 2:12 pm #

    I think I curled my bangs occasionally and did indeed crimp my hair every once in awhile, including the bangs.

  144. Shandra June 15, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

    I grew them out – my previously straight hair decided to turn curly right around 8th-9th grade, so my normal-length bangs (that I begged my mother for forever) suddenly curled into super short bangs and had to go!

  145. Natalie G. June 15, 2012 at 2:36 pm #

    I pinned them back- they were so awkward, I could never do anything with them. :)

    As far as the hair in high school, I was never far from a curling iron. I had the full on late 70’s flip going on. Think Eric’s older sister from The 70’s Show…got the picture? I have several photos that document this time, unfortunately.

  159. Shannon June 15, 2012 at 3:49 pm #

    None of the above! I had short hair, but definitely made it tall! It was the 80’s! I followed you on Pinterest and already follow you on FB.

    I teased the hell out of my bangs (think Something About Mary hair goop style). I’m pretty sure I looked awesome, or not.

    Had long, stringy hair parted right down the middle – no bangs at all. Thought I was Susan Dey from The Partridge Family.

    Freshman year of high school was an all around awkward “grow-out-my-bangs” year for me so I did just about everything imaginable to them… in the end, headbands won! I spent the next 3 year of high school bang-less and so much happier! ;) I follow you on Twitter and am crossing my fingers to win!

  186. Lindsay June 15, 2012 at 6:20 pm #

    I spent most of high school trying to grow my bangs out after making the terrible mistake of cutting them in 8th grade!

  187. Sandy June 15, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

    It seems like a hundred years ago (1962) but I think I wore them straight and/or teased them a bit. Thank you so very much for the opportunity to win this wonderful prize. It has been my dream for quite some time to purchase these cookbooks – but I just couldn’t afford them – and to have a chance to win them is wonderful! I absolutely LOVE Ree Drummond!

    In HS, I had like a little curler to kinda give’em a little lift. Nowadays, I just try to get a great haircut that allows me to let it sorta drip dry and comb or brush them where I want them to be.

    First of all, if you only knew how I feel about buttered orzo. Swoon.

    Curled. like with hot rollers.

  213. DessertForTwo June 16, 2012 at 9:53 am #

    SO FUN! :)

    In highschool, I braided my hair wet every night before bed, woke up and took them all out to have crimped hair. It was so dang rad. I had so many friends. Wait, well, my band friends count, right? I seriously remember complaining about shoving my crimped hair into my BAND HAT. Yeah, the one with the freakin’ feather on top!!

    Can we still be friends?

    I did none of the above because I was growing out my hair and I had curly hair. I might have blown them out though. But I think by the time I got to high school they were at a decent length wear they weren’t bangs anymore.

    Lots of goo in my hair in those days. I totally had the Madanna/Desperately Seeking Susan thing going on. Mom, why did you let me do that?!

  250. Andrea P June 18, 2012 at 9:45 am #

    There was definitely a curling iron involved, lots of ratting to get those suckers in position, and finally an asthma attack inducing amount of aerosol hairspray to hold the piece of art in place.

    I have curly hair so I neither curled, teased or crimped my hair. Although I ended up wearing it in a pixie cut most of the time because I was unable to handle the curls! Now, I wear it a bit longer and have more fun with what the good-Lord gave me for my mop of hair.

  258. Tarin June 18, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

    Separated them into two sections and blew them dry with a big round brush, the top going up and the bottom down, then I touched them up with a big curling iron and rocked that weirdo bang circle thingy.

  259. Michelle June 18, 2012 at 2:27 pm #

    I did both, curl and tease, I am sad to say, and have the pics to prove it! Ha!
