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.

Nice soup!cuzpat in Sikeston loved it
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!!) tha...morettaaccoo in Buffalo loved it
