Chicken Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by JSoyster

My own recipe! I have always enjoyed chicken soup, but decided to add a little creole kick to it, and came up with this. I hope you enjoy!

Top Review by Sydney Mike

Cut this recipe in half when making it & used 2 large chicken breasts (about 7-8 ounces each) & after that, I also cut back on the amount of hot sauce ~ I don't mind a kick, just don't want my pants on fire! Even that that, the soup was very satisfying, & the recipe is definitely a keeper! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grind the bay leaves in the mortar and pistil.
  2. Chop the Chicken into small pieces.
  3. Except for the Orzo, throw all ingredients into a pot, and turn on medium heat for 20 minutes.
  4. Add the Orzo and cook for an additional 10 minutes, and serve. Add water if it is not soupy enough, but I like it chunky.
