Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

I’m officially in soup mode now that fall has hit.

The recipe below is one I stumbled upon in Pinterest, but it’s so good and it will definitely be in my rotating soup list.

I highly recommend this soup if you are starting to feel sick. The lemon and chicken broth will get you feeling better in no time.
