It's cold here so soup was most definitely on the agenda. Chicken Orzo Soup from a past issue of Cooking Light. One of my New Year's Resolutions, and I tried to be realistic this year, is to purge some un-needed things. One category that needs a thorough "pick-through" is my collection of cooking magazines. I had a lot of old cooking light issues. A lot. I'm so glad I found Pinterest. It's my new obsession. I do seriously mean obsession here. It's the easiest thing to use, like an online bulletin board, or in my case, filing cabinet. I have had so much fun pinning articles and recipes and seeing who likes my pins. See my sidebar ---------> to follow me on Pinterest. I would love to see what you're pinning!
Anyhow, back to dinner. This was a wonderful recipe. I cooked a chicken with herbs, veggies and water in my crock-pot all day yesterday and used the chicken and broth for the soup. I am also trying to use things out of the pantry this year. It's going OK so far. I had orzo so that was why I wanted to try this. I also got whole chickens on sale for $.78/pound, so I restocked my freezer with a few of those. Always nice to have on hand for broth and soups. Here are a few other recipes I use that technique on:
Chicken Noodle Soup
White Chicken Chili
