This is my first time trying orzo. I am insanely impressed. It is super filling and delicious. This soup wasn’t my super favorite as it wasn’t different enough from chicken noodle so it just wanted chicken noodle soup instead. I think if I used different veggies or added a different base I would like it more. The boy liked it a lot more and finished off a massive bowl so I figure it was worthy enough to post.
Lemon Chicken Orzo Stew
1/2lb Chicken Breasts, cubed
2 Carrots, diced
1 Celery stalk, diced
1/2 Onion, diced
3c Chicken broth
1 1/2T Lemon juice
Sprinkle of tarragon
1. I started mine in the crockpot so I would not have to wait for the veggies to cook once I got home. I put the chicken broth, carrots, onion, and celery on low in my crock for about 6 hours. You could also just start this in the pot you would cook the rest of the soup, just cook until tender.
2. Once veggies are soft, transfer to a pot on stove and bring to a boil. Add diced chicken and orzo and cook until pasta is tender and chicken is cooked.
3. Add in lemon juice and tarragon. Give it a good stir and add lemon juice or tarragon to your liking.
