Spicy Chicken Orzo Soup
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 2 lbs chicken parts. i use leg quarters but you can use breasts if you prefer
- 3 stalks chopped celery
- 1 chopped onion
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 1/2 cup chopped hot peppers, more if you can stand it, less if you can't. use any really hot kind you like.
- 6 ounces of orzo
- 1 or 2 tsp of seasoned salt to your taste
1Boil your chicken in a large pot of water. Remove chicken and chop or shred it.
2Add the vegetables and salt to the water and cook until tender.
3Return as much of the chopped chicken as you like in your soup to the pot. If you have leftovers save them for another recipe.
4Add the orzo and cook until the pasta is done. More orzo makes a heartier soup, less makes a nice thinner soup.
5Optional - if you like you can also add some Italian seasoning if you like it.
