Serves 4

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

2 large carrots, chopped

2 stalks celery, chopped

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

3 pts. chicken broth

1 lemon, halved + 1 extra cut into wedges for serving

1 lb. chicken breasts

2 pts. water

2.8 oz. gluten-free orzo pasta

2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

How to Prepare

Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots and celery and cook the vegetables, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until tender.

Season with salt and pepper, then stir in the chicken broth. Now add the lemon halves, chicken breasts, and water. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.

Stir in orzo pasta, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes until the orzo is tender and the chicken is cooked through.

Remove the chicken from the soup and shred with 2 forks, then return the chicken back to the pot and stir through.

When ready to serve, ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with parsley and serve with a wedge of lemon.
