How to make it

  • Begin to Boil water for Orzo Noodles in a large Pot
  • Chop: Pepper, Celery, Onion, Carrot & Garlic
  • Sweat in a little oil: Onion, then add Celery, Carrot, Garlic & Red pepper
  • *Season with Salt & pepper
  • Once vegetables are almost ready: I pushed them to the side added a little oil and cooked chicken *seasoned with Pepper, Salt & Cumin.
  • Once outside of chicken is cooked: I pulled it off, cut it into smaller pieces and returned it to the pan.
  • Add half of the stock to the pan, and let simmer.
  • Once Orzo is done cooking (about 18 minutes) remove excess water [we used the lid method as orzo is too small for our colander]
  • Add chicken and vegetables to orzo in pot.
  • Add remaining Stock, Fresh Basil, more Cumin to taste
  • Heat & add cornstarch mixture to slightly thicken.

    Sounds very flavorful and absolutely delish. I like the way you do the chicken too. Never used orzo, but other starchy foods in soups break down a bit and exude thickeners in the broth. (I just put on a nice warm sock. soup weather is here!!) thank you for a deluxe recipe! 555555555555555555555555
