  • Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1 tbsp. EVOO over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and jalapeno and cook for 30 seconds. Push the onion mixture to the side of the skillet. Add the chicken, season with salt and pepper and cook undisturbed for 2 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup water, the tomatoes, lemon zest and lemon juice and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve the chicken mixture on a bed of the spinach orzo.
