Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup


What is Orzo?

Orzo is a traditional pasta shape that looks like extra-large rice grains or even drops of water. It’s made and cooked just like regular pasta. It’s chewier and nuttier due to its small size. It also has more uses. Orzo is often added to soups, salads, and casseroles. It can also be served on its own with thick sauces.

Add the broth

Add the herbs
