Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup

This is another recipe that was born of necessity, and the ingredients I had on hand.

This soup comes together nicely in the crock pot, which makes it even that much easier!  Tender chicken, carrots, orzo pasta, and a nice chicken/lemon base to the broth makes this soup perfect for a chilly day.

Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup


3 large chicken breasts
4 large carrots (sliced)
1/2 c. onion (chopped)
1/2 Tbs pepper
2 tsp rosemary
2 tsp thyme
1/3 c. lemon juice
4 c. chicken broth
2 c. water
2 tsp chicken bouillon
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 c. orzo pasta


Place all ingredients except for the pasta into the crock pot.  Cook on high for 5 hours.  Remove chicken, shred using two forks and return to crock pot.

Add orzo to the crock pot and allow to cook for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Adjust seasonings to taste.
