Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup



This is one of my go-to soups. I love to make soups and stews because you can make large pots and freeze it for later. I had this soup at a cafe with my mom one time and decided to recreate it. I have been trying to perfect it ever since, and I think I've got it. 

Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup:
1 cup orzo
64 ounces chicken broth
2 large cooked chicken breasts (cubed or shredded)
1 bunch green onion
Zest and juice of 1 lemon (1/4 cups juice)
3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
salt and pepper to taste
feta cheese

1. Cook the orzo and drain
2. Fill a large pot (I use my dutch oven) with the chicken stock
3. Add cooked chicken (I cook mine in a crock pot on high for 4 hours in a bit of chicken stock and salt and peppered then shred it)
3. Add green onions, lemon, garlic salt, salt and pepper
4. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for 30-40 minutes with the lid on
5. Serve with a sprinkle of feta cheese

Makes 6-8 servings

This is a soup that gets better as it sits, but over time the orzo will absorb the liquid 

Enjoy!

  4. If you cook orzo separately and add to the soup when you are going to eat it , it won't soak up the broth. I keep all my soups with pasta separate and just add when I eat it.
