easy chicken recipes


  • 2-3 cups shredded cooked chicken breasts
  • 2 T olive oil
  • garlic clove, minced (or 1 T of the jarred stuff)
  • small onion, chopped
  • handful of baby carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 4 c chicken broth (I used the leftover broth from cooking the chicken breasts)
  • 1-2 c orzo (depending on how thick you want your soup- I did 1 cup)
  • pepper, to taste

Add the olive oil to a stock pot or dutch oven over medium heat.

Toss in the onion, olive oil, garlic, a few cracks of pepper, the celery and carrots.

Cook over medium heat until the veggies start to get tender- about 5 to 7 minutes.

    i was looking at your soup recipes, i noticed they don’t mention how many servings they make, I’m looking for simple soup recipes that feed 30-40. Just need to know if I need to triple your recipes or?? Thanks :)
