Let's Make It
Cook pasta as directed on package, omitting salt. Meanwhile, cut 1 lemon into 4 wedges; squeeze juice from remaining lemon. Reserve lemon wedges and juice for later use.
Whisk egg in shallow dish until blended. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan in separate shallow dish. Add flour to third shallow dish. Dip chicken, 1 breast at a time, into flour, then egg, then panko mixture, turning to evenly coat both sides of each breast with each ingredient.
Melt butter with oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 2 to 3 min. or until bottoms of breasts are golden brown. Turn; cook on medium heat 2 to 3 min. or until chicken is done. Transfer chicken to plate, reserving drippings in skillet; cover chicken to keep warm.
Add onions to drippings in skillet; cook and stir 30 sec. Stir in chicken broth and reserved lemon juice; cook on medium-high heat 6 to 8 min. or until sauce is slightly reduced, stirring occasionally and scraping browned bits from bottom of skillet. Add cream cheese spread; cook 1 min. or until completely melted, stirring constantly with whisk.
Drain orzo; spoon onto platter. Top with chicken and cream cheese sauce. Serve with reserved lemon wedges.
Sprinkle with chopped fresh parsley before serving.
