The I-don’t-feel-so-good, easy, chicken soup

Over the weekend I was tired, I didn’t feel very good, and my throat hurt. I didn’t want to cook anything complicated. But I wanted something classic and nutritious to help me feel better. I looked in my pantry and found some orzo. I had some chicken stock, a couple carrots, and some celery on hand too. After standing around feeling sorry for myself for a while, I realized that was all I needed. Put all that in a pot and what do you get? Chicken soup! That should help me get back on my feet.

This soup can be served as a side dish or a main course. and the recipe can be scaled up to accomodate larger portions. The proportions given make 4 cups, or two to four servings.

Easy Chicken Soup

4 cups chicken stock
Chopped vegtables (I used 2 carrots and one rib of celery. Onions, garlic and nearly anything else can be added. Cut them to bite-size peices.)
1/2 cup orzo (or rice or pasta)
Chicken (raw or cooked) (cut into bite-size peices or shredded)

Instructions:

  1. Heat the chicken stock over medium high heat until it just reaches a boil. Add the chopped vegtables and orzo and cook for about 15-20 minutes, until the vegtables and orzo are nearly cooked. Partially cover and reduce to a simmer.
  2. Add the chicken. If using cooked chicken, simmer for 3-5 minutes. If using raw chicken, simmer 7-10 minutes.

If you don’t feel well, I reccomend repeating the above steps until you feel better. Animal crackers also help.
