Chicken Minestrone with Orzo

This quick and easy chicken soup is a tasty alternative to the traditional version...




In a large pot, heat the chicken broth and water over medium heat. Add the chicken breasts. Simmer for about 15 minutes until cooked completely through. Check to make sure no pink remains. Remove the chicken and dice. Strain the broth. Return the chicken and the broth to the pot and set aside.

In a large pan, melt the butter and sauté the onions and garlic over medium heat until soft.

Add the vegetables, tomatoes, basil, and Parmesan cheese to the soup pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until all of the vegetables are soft about 15 minutes or so.

Add the orzo and cannellini beans. Cook until the orzo is tender about 10 minutes. Season with the sea salt and pepper. 

Enjoy from Cape Cod Soups!
