Spicy Chicken Orzo Soup

I recently created this recipe because I wanted to make a soup that contained all the things that help me alleviate my asthma. I'm not such a fan of chicken soup but this turned out great and now I make it all the time whether I need it or not.

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

How to Make Spicy Chicken Orzo Soup


  • 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.
  • 6Enjoy
