    Notes

    For the sequencing:
    It's always nice when all the elements of your dish finish around the same time, especially on a night when you're on a schedule. 
    I recommend searing the chicken first then pop it into the oven while you prep the veggies and sauce. When the chicken is done take it out of the oven, cover it and let it rest. Increase the oven temperature to 450F and pop in the asparagus and tomatoes while you get the sauce going and orzo cooking. Remove both from oven after 15 minutes. Asparagus will be done but the tomatoes will need a bit more time. Add the breadcrumbs and or cheese and return to oven to broil. You can blanch the zucchini at the very end or at any point when you have 45 seconds to spare ;)
