Lemon Chicken Soup

Makes: 4 servings

Description: Soup is on in just 20 mins. This is an easy to make soup with some great flavor that will taste homemade, even though you can use some shortcuts (like a rotisserie chicken).

6 cups  Low sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup  Fresh lemon juice
1  Dried bay leaf
2  Medium carrots, chopped
1 cup  Spaghetti, broken into 2 inch pieces or Orzo
2 cups  Diced, cooked rotisserie chicken
1 cup  Grated Romano Cheese
1/4 cup  Chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
To taste  Kosher salt

Instructions: In a large stockpot, bring the chicken broth, lemon juice, and bay leaf to a boil over medium high heat. Add carrots and simmer until tender, about 5-8 minutes. Add pasta and cook until tender, 5-5 minutes for spaghetti, longer for orzo - stirring occasionally. Add the chicken and heat through, 2-3 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Add most of the cheese and the parsley and stir. Add kosher salt to taste. Serve in bowls and garnish with more cheese and fresh parsley. Yum!

I just tried this one last weekend and loved it. I am always in a hurry and prefer quick recipes with relatively minimal amount of ingredients and this one definitely fit the bill.....and it tasted great. I love anything with lemon, which is why this one caught my attention. This recipe is a keeper for me.
