Method to my Meals – Method to my Meals

Comfort Food In A Bowl

The soups I make are typically healthy and simple. This recipe provides an equal balance of veggies to chicken to orzo to broth. If you are in the mood for extra carrots, add in an extra ½ cup. Get creative and add in broccoli, beans, lentils, zucchini, really anything you want. You can also sub in elbow pasta or mini shells for the orzo. There I go again on my love of different pasta shapes….I’ll take any excuse to bust open a box of pasta!

Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Chicken Noodle Soup   Save Print Ingredients

  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup orzo pasta
  • 2 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast (see my basic grilled chicken recipe and use 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts)
  • 1 cup chopped carrots, about ¼ inch thick
  • 1 cup chopped celery, about ¼ inch thick
  • 1 chopped yellow onion
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Crushed red pepper, to taste
  • Cilantro, for garnish, optional
  • Lemon juice, to taste, optional

Instructions

  1. Bring chicken broth and water to a boil on high heat. Season with some salt.
  2. Add the orzo.
  3. Add the chicken, chopped veggies, and garlic.
  4. After 6-8 minutes, lower the heat and simmer until ready to eat. You will know the soup is ready once the pasta is cooked. Then, add in salt and pepper to taste, crushed red pepper and lemon juice if you wish. The cilantro adds a pretty element for serving!
