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. And the soup 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 (Cornstarch) according to your preference, or you might not want to add it at all, which is also just fine.

I love orzo with tomatoes and zucchini! It's a great side dish. But this soup looks amazing as well!
