Greek night: chicken thighs, pilaf, salad

The thighs didn't take a lot of smoke but the marinade (yoghurt, oregano, olive oil, garlic) did its job.

I'm digging a hole under your fence.

The hole is still there since the big grilled red pepper job last year. LOL

Thank you for checking it out.

Looks good how did you make the rice Pilaf ? Is that Dill on top interesting ?

It is dill, yes. Simple but powerful side. My kids could probably fill up on pilaf if we had a meat shortage.

I sauted some onion in butter+olive oil, then mixed in the rice until fully coated. Added broth (twice the rice volume), a lot of lemon juice, salt and pepper; brought to boil then simmered until all liquid was absorbed. Fresh chopped dill (or parsley, or both) before serving.

Thank you for looking.

Looks like a great meal!

Have you ever made pilaf with orzo? I do it at work sometimes...

Not pilaf but we cook orzo sometimes.

I remember being at a bar in Italy with a (local) business colleague. I ordered espresso he ordered orzo. Huh? Pasta at a bar? I was more surprised when he got his order ....something that looked like coffee. Turns out orzo also means barley coffee LOL.
