A quick and easy "comfort food" soup for those cold nights. My family loves it and it's very easy to make. Homemade taste in a pinch!

2 can(s)
32 oz cans chicken broth
1 1/2 lb
chicken breast tenders or nuggets, cut in bite size pieces
3 clove
garlic, minced
1/2 c
chopped onions
3 Tbsp
extra virgin olive oil
5 small
potatoes, peeled, cut in half or thirds
40 small
baby carrots
2 c
cooked orzo, rice, or other small pasta, drained, rinsed


1Heat olive oil in a 6-8 qt pot over medium heat. Add minced garlic. Saute until just beginning to brown. Add onions, saute until translucent
2Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Turn heat down to medium, add chicken, potatoes, and carrots. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked, about 45 minutes.
3Just before serving, add cooked orzo, rice, or other pasta. I used thin spaghetti, broken into 2 inch size pieces. Stir to mix. Serve soup with salt and pepper to taste, and grated parmesan cheese, if desired.
