Chicken Soup for the Soul

Happy Monday Everyone!!! Well here in Central Ohio we have another gray, rainy day.  I found myself looking for comfort in a bowl today.  Mondays are always a busy day at work and there is nothing like a hot bowl of chicken soup to take some of the work stress away.  Well that is, at least for about however long your break is for lunch!  So here is my quick and easy recipe to comfort in a cup or bowl.

Kelli's Chicken Soup for the Soul

48oz water
32oz box of chicken broth (I use the store brand organic)
1/2 cup orzo
2 12.5oz cans chicken or use 2-3 cups chopped up leftover chicken from a previous dinner
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 tbsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried rosemary

Bring your broth and water to a boil and add your orzo.  Let boil for about 10mins then turn heat down to medim low and add the rest of your ingredients.  Let simmer for about 15mins and serve hot.  The great thing about this recipe is you can add more of less of everything on the list depending on how rich you like your flavors.
