This traditional soup is hands down one of my favorite soups of all time. It’s so simple, flavorful, hearty, and heartwarming. It really does check off all the boxes to qualify as the perfect soup. In the classic Greek version, this soup is made with rice, but I opted to switch it out for some tender tiny orzo. Switching the textures a bit makes it just a little more exciting and adds some oomph to the dish!
Now, I might have the best news ever for you, are you ready? Drum roll please….you can easily make this in 20 minutes and have a meal that will last for the week or even weekend!
Seriously, this might be one of the easiest soups I have ever made. So, even if you think you can’t cook, trust me you can do this! If you can boil orzo you got this, if you have a hand mixer, the tool basically does all the work for you! And if you can shred some chicken you definitely got this!
There are a few key things you need to do during the cooking process to ensure it comes out perfect every time, don't worry they are easy:
I know you might have a few more questions such as, what should I serve this with? Well I will be happy to tell you! I love serving it with black pepper and a few pinches of fresh dill. Too much dill can over power the soup, but feel free to add as much as you would like to your bowl when serving. I also love serving this with toasty warmed pita bread for dipping, dunking and scooping. You can feel free to also serve with extra lemons, but it is pretty lemon-y as is.
