Nothing says comfort like a bowl of hearty chicken soup. Pair with a sandwich for a simple, comforting dinner option.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 1 3/4 cups broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add orzo; cook 10 minutes or until done. Drain.

Step 2

While orzo cooks, heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add carrot, celery, onion, and chicken; cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining 2 1/4 cups broth, 1 1/4 cups water, parsley, and thyme; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Discard herb sprigs. Add orzo, spinach, juice, salt, and pepper; simmer 1 minute.

I live in Texas so as soon as I know we're going to have cool days -- I go to store and buy a rotisserie chicken. This is what I use for the Chicken. The key to this recipe, in my opinion, is to use FRESH -- lemon juice; dill weed, etc I am so in love with this recipe!

I used a rotisserie chicken, also added herbs from Provence and crushed red pepper. Delicious.

I found this recipe very underwhelming. It's edible but by no means delicious.

Easy. Needs some spicing up, as others have said. Good enough to keep in the rotation and has some good opportunities for variation.

Love this soup. It's quick, easy, and is so comforting. It is in our regular menu rotation at our house in the winter months. I've made this for potluck, and there were no leftovers. I have also left parsley leaves (no stems) in the soup, and it tastes good.

Very good, tasty and easy to make. It's a little different than your average chicken soup.But add a little more spice.
