Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup ala ~DKBB~

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup ala ~DKBB~
(original recipe from Cook up Comfort by Eric Greenspan)

1 large can (12.5oz) chicken breast in water
2 carrots, finely chopped
1 rib celery, finely chopped
½ onion, finely chopped
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. cracked pepper
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup orzo (wheat orzo, if you can get it)
2 large eggs
½ tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • Drain canned chicken, saving the liquid; shred chicken with a fork; set aside.
  • Place carrots, celery, onions, salt, and pepper in large pot; add broth and bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat and simmer, covered, until veggies are tender (about 20 minutes).
  • Add orzo to pot, adjust heat and cook at a high simmer until orzo is tender (about 10 to 15 minutes).
  • Whisk eggs, lemon juice, and remaining salt in small bowl until frothy; stirring constantly, gradually add ½ cup of the hot soup into the egg mixture, then slowly stir the egg mixture into the soup pot.
  • Add the chicken to the pot and cook, stirring often, until heated through (about 5 minutes) – do NOT simmer.
Makes 4 decent sized servings.
