Why I Love This Recipe

WINNER of the 2014 Book Club Soup Smackdown! Melissa's keen eye picked this recipe from Epicurious.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium leek, white and pale-green parts only, halved lengthwise, sliced crosswise 1/2" thick
1 celery stalk, sliced crosswise 1/2" thick
12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken thighs
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup orzo
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
Lemon halves (for serving)


Directions

Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add leek and celery and cook, stirring often, until vegetables are soft, 5-8 minutes. Add chicken and broth; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer until chicken is cooked through, 15-20 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate. Let cool, then shred chicken into bite-size pieces.


Meanwhile, return broth to a boil. Add orzo and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes.


Remove pot from heat. Stir in chicken and dill. Serve with lemon halves for squeezing over.
