Quick Chicken Orzo Soup

Delicious, thick, filling and warming Quick Chicken Orzo Soup ~ comfort food in a flash !

Instead of using the usual thin noodles, I used Orzo in this quick Chicken and Orzo Soup which turned out delicious and much more comforting than noodles.

As I have mentioned before, I do not like spending a lot of time in the kitchen when I am cold. I much rather prefer a good bowl of quick homemade soup and curl up with my E-Reader.

This recipe is extremely quick to make which makes it perfect for a busy weeknight and served with some fresh crusty dinner rolls – or a gooey grilled cheese! – you will have dinner ready in no time at all.

You can also decide exactly how thin or thick the Chicken and Orzo Soup should be. I sometimes prefer a little thinner, but on the colder nights, I like a nice thick soup.

Adjust the addition of Cornflour according to your preference, or you might not want to add it at all, which is also just fine.

This recipe is so easy to double or even triple and it would not take any longer to cook.
