Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup A group of delicious vegetables and tender chicken in a refreshing lemon broth – it’s pure comfort in a bowl.

We had wonderful 70-degree weather here in the bay area. I can finally run my shorts and walk long distances on my trackers. But even in this perfect weather, I can always use a bowl of chicken noodle soup.

It doesn’t matter even if I’m sick with the flu or have a cleaner healthier bill – this soup can be eaten any day of the week, any time of the day!

But don’t be fooled – this is not chicken noodle soup. Traditional noodles are replaced and orzo is used, which is macaroni in the form of a large grain of rice. My favorite part of this soup is fresh lemon juice.

It’s pure convenience in a bowl with a hint of fresh lemon flavor. Also, this arrives in just 30 minutes and fills the house with an incredible aroma.

They gather in the saddle, making it the perfect meal throughout the night.

Orzo is those little noodles shaped like rice. It looks like rice but it cooks very quickly, so you get the effect of rice in less time. I don’t cook a lot with it, but I always enjoy it. I mean, you really can’t go wrong with pasta. Except for the tie pasta, but that’s a story for another day 😉

Lemon Chicken Orange Tongue Soup is easy to make. All you have to do is fry onions, carrots, and celery, stir in the garlic and flour, add the broth, spices, and chicken, and cook for 15 minutes.

At this point, the chicken is done and you can add orzo and cook for another 10 minutes or so until the pasta is done. Take the chicken out and cut it into strips and add it back to the soup, then it’s time to add lemon juice, parsley, salt, and pepper.

  1. 2 In a large pot, sauté the celery, carrots, and onions in butter and oil over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes.
  2. Stir the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then add the flour and cook for a minute or so.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth and stir until the flour dissolves, then add the Italian spices and chicken. Bring the soup to a boil.
  4. Cover the soup (slightly open the lid), reduce the heat, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Add the bird’s tongue and leave it for another 10 minutes or until it is tender. Keep the lid closed and turn it over regularly as it tends to stick to the bottom of the pot.
  6. Remove chicken from saucepan, chop, and add again. Add lemon juice (you may want to add more than I suggest, I didn’t want the soup to be too lemony for some people), parsley, and season the soup with salt and pepper as needed. Serve immediately.
