I've made this soup many times for my family for many years from either a rotisserie chicken, or left over chicken. You can follow the same recipe using leftover turkey. It is a recipe from scratch so use your taste to add more of this or that.

How to Make Rotisserie Chicken Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Take the skin and meat off the bone of the thigh, legs,wings and use about half of the breast meat. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot, heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add 3 cloves of chopped garlic and brown in the oil. Next add your chopped onion and cook until tender. Add the sliced carrots, sliced celery, canned tomatoes and cook about 5 minutes. Next add all of your seasonings to the vegetables and continue to cook about 5 minutes on medium. Add your two boxes of chicken stock and the cut up chicken. Turn heat on high just until boiling. Once soup comes to a good boil, lower the heat to medium. Cover with a top and cook about 30-45 minutes.
  3. Once the vegetables are tender, add 1 diced potato (optional) and about 1/2 cup of Orzo. Drizzle additional olive oil in the soup. Continue cooking and stirring until the pasta is done.
