I did not use the amount of chicken and used chicken broth and water. I did find it a little bland but my DH loved it. Really good soup if you are not feeling well LOL All in all a very good soup that you could easily season with different herbs to suit your taste. Even cutting back on the meat I had alot so this could easily be frozen without the orzo (which could be cooked and added during reheating Made for My 3 Chefs Nov 2008

  1. Rinse the chicken and chicken parts. Set aside giblets for another use. Place chicken and chicken parts in a 6-quart pot. Add cold water to cover and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and cook 30 minutes. Skim off foam and fat that rises to the surface.
  2. Add vegetables, parsley, peppercorns and salt to taste. Simmer 1 1/2 hours or until chicken is tender. If needed, add more water to keep the chicken submerged.
  3. Remove the chicken from the pot and set the pot aside. Discard skin and bones. Cut chicken into bit-sized pieces and return to pot. Reheat gently.
