About Chicken Orzo Soup:

I’ve always liked soups with chicken in it. Obviously I like chicken and I can eat every chicken dish. But unfortunately today’s chicken is not “natural”, you know. Anyway, it’ll stay as an healthy food in human’s cuisine and I will always prepare recipes based on chicken. This is one of them: chicken orzo soup. You should have tasted it before, but give a chance to my recipe and at least try it. I’m sure you’ll also like this soup :)

  5. A coffeepot

directions
  1. 1

    Wash and put the chicken breast into a pot. Add water on it and boil (it may make it more delicious if you add an onion and a pinch black pepper on it while boiling).

  2. 2

    When it is boiled, pull apart the chicken breast to small pieces.

  3. 3

    Add oil and flour into another pot suitable for cooking soup. Saute until the flour turns pink.

  4. 4

    When the flour turns pink, add the chicken broth (5-6 cups) little by little and stir well in order to prevent the flour’s rolling.

  5. 5

    When the chicken broth is boiled, add the pulled chicken pieces. After 5-10 minutes add the orzos and stir.

  6. 6

    Meanwhile mix the egg, yogurt and lemon squash in a mixing bowl by using a whisk or blender.

  7. 7

    Pour this mix onto the soup slowly and continue to stir while pouring it.

  8. 8

    Stir constantly until it boils and when it boils, set the stove to medium heat.

  9. 9

    Simmer for 20-25 minutes and then turn off the stove.

  10. 10

    For the sauce, add the oil, red pepper and mint into the coffeepot and boil for a couple minutes. Pour the sauce onto the soup when it’s hot.
