1 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breast

5-7 Cups chicken broth

5 Oz. Bag baby spinach

3 Cloves Garlic

1 Tsp. Salt

½ Tsp. Cracked black pepper

½ Diced Yellow onion

1 Cup dried orzo pasta

½ cup fresh basil, diced up into small shreds

1 Tsp. Coconut oil

Fresh shredded parmesan for garnish

Directions:

Precook the chicken and shred it before making the soup.

In a large pot, set the burner heat to medium and add all liquid ingredients, except for the skim milk.

Turn the heat up to a medium high and add the juice squeezed from the fresh lemon. Make sure to squeeze the lemon first into a separate container so you can remove the seeds, before pouring it into the soup.

Add the garlic, basil, diced onion, coconut oil and shredded chicken.

 

Turn the heat down to medium. Add the milk, orzo pasta, spinach, salt and pepper. Cook the soup at this temperature for about 20 minutes

Sprinkle with fresh parmesan for garnish and enjoy!
