Lime Chicken Orzo Soup

This soup when I went to the grocery store started as a thai chicken noodle soup. However,  the store required me to change my game plan since they were out of a few key ingredients like cilantro.  I stopped looked at what was in my basket already and ran with it!

Seriously, who knew lime would be so tasty in soup. I am definitely considering more opportunities to use it or other citrus in soups. What could be more great when you’re sick, vitamin C and chicken broth!

Ingredients:
•2 limes
•2 Chicken breasts
•1 onion
•1 yellow bell pepper (can be any color pepper)
•1 lb orzo
•1 pack of Mushrooms
•4 cups Chicken broth
•2 cups water
•1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
•Avocado (topping)
•Feta cheese (topping)
•Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Chop veggies and chicken breast add to crock pot. Add chicken broth and water. Juice your two limes straight into the pot.  Let cook for an hour on high in the crock pot then add your orzo. Cook for another hour on high. Serve hot with avocado and feta.
