  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

Instructions: How to Cook Corner Bakery Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside.
  2. In the same pot, add the diced onion, carrots, and celery. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  3. Pour in the chicken broth and bring to a simmer. Add the orzo pasta and cook according to package instructions until al dente, about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Shred the cooked chicken breasts using two forks and add them back to the pot. Stir in the fresh lemon juice and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Simmer the soup for another 5 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. Stir in the chopped parsley right before serving.
  6. Serve the Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup hot, garnished with additional lemon zest and parsley if desired. Enjoy!
