    Chef #1325382's Note:

    This is a Cooking Light recipe I modified. I substituted store-bought rotisserie chicken and chicken stock in place of making my own. I serve this with some grated Romano cheese on top.

      I am making this tonight, but a little shocked at the nutritional info? I am using just part of a rotisserie chicken from which I have removed the skin and simmered. I am cooling now and am going to skim off the fat. Also reducing the amt of orzo to 1/2 cup.

      This is really very tasty soup. I used the juice and rind from two lemons, but might up it to three lemons next time.

      Delicious soup. I made half a recipe and it was great. I loved the lemon flavor along with the spices. DH loves orzo and he loved it too.
