This is a very good variation of traditional chicken soup. The juice of the lemons adds a light, fresh flavor that makes this soup perfect for the warmer months as well as the traditional, cooler "soup months". I like the addition of the fresh spinach and I decided not to add my spinach to the soup until the last 5-10 minutes of cooking, just to keep the spinach a little brighter in color. I also cut the amount of orzo in half in order to keep my soup more broth based - I have made it with the full amount of orzo and it is also very good, but more like a stew or thick soup due to the orzo absorbing so much of the broth. The only addition I made was to add about 1/2 cup good, white wine to the soup. (I almost always add some white wine to my chicken-based soups.) This soup is exactly what it claims to be: chicken soup with a bright twist of lemon! Thank you for a great recipe that I will definitely make again!
