Cook orzo according to package directions (omit salt if it is called for).   Drain and rinse with cold water, drain and place in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, combine lemon zest and next 6 ingredients, stirring well with a whisk.  Drizzle the mixture over the cooked orzo and toss to coat.  Add chicken and next 4 ingredients: toss gently to combine.  Sprinkle with cheese.
