    Delicious especially when you’re sick and it’s cold outside!

    I make this whenever someone is sick and they always feel better. I add a bit of fresh grated ginger and some lemon zest and it makes it even more delicious. Occasionally I will swap the orzo and chicken for chicken tortellini if I’m in a rush.

    Truly delightful. It was delicious, and I really enjoyed making it! I used jasmine rice instead of orzo. My family was all sick when I made it, and we all were feeling a lot better the next day! I don't care that it's summer, I'll be making this again very soon.

    I enjoyed this a lot. I used rice instead of orzo. It also made a lot of servings

    Pretty good. Easy to make. I used leftover grilled chicken. Probably wouldn’t bother to make again.

    Only had bone in drumsticks, so I baked in the oven until tender. Followed the recipe, adding the chicken the same time I added the orzo.. Not a big rosemary fan so I left it out.. The soup was delicious. Will make again!

    very tasty, however, I doubled the amount of chicken and used a whole cup of orzo.

    I toned down the thyme and rosemary and added a dash of cayenne pepper... I’ve made it 4 times now and it’s a huge hit!!! Love this adult version of classic chicken soup!!

    I think this soup has curative properties. Awesome if you have a cold, or even just on a cold day!

    Amazing! The lemon really sets it off. This helped my boyfriend and I get over a nasty cold.

    Delicious - needs longer than 12 minutes to cook the orzo.

    Loved this recipe, only added some extra lemon juice. Had Christmas Eve lunch, guests loved it and ate all of it.
