Panera Bread's Lemon Chicken Orzo soup

Have you been to Panea and tasted their food?  Definitely yummy.  Here is a great soup from their menu.  Today I am recovering from the flu and cooked up a batch in YES only 30 minutes!


• 8 cups fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
• 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, diced
• 1 medium carrot, peeled and cut into small pieces
• 1 medium celery stalk, sliced
• 1/4 cup finely chopped onion (optional -- i do not like onion)
• 1/3 - 2/3 cups chopped spinach
• 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
• 1/4 tsp oregano
• 1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
• 1 cup orzo
• Juice of FRESH lemon (about 1/4 cup)

 Place all of the ingredients except the lemon juice in a 4-quart pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the orzo is cooked al dente.
 Add the lemon juice, stirring well to mix.
