Orzo with Artichokes, Balsamic vinegar and Chicken -- as easy as A-B-C! Pancetta, spinach, and toasted pine nuts also play tasty parts in this pasta dish! This is a great way to use up leftover roast chicken (or turkey) meat!

Inspired by Panera Bread's version, this soup delivers on flavor. Tender chicken in a lemony broth with orzo pasta, carrots, onions, celery, and baby spinach. This has quickly become one of my family's very favorite soup recipes.

Greek Lemon and Chicken Soup (Avgolemono)

Rating: 5 stars 22
A copycat recipe of my favorite Greek restaurant. Creamy (but dairy-free) chicken and lemon soup. Delicious on its own or served with a Greek salad and bread or pita.
