I love making a big batch of chicken noodle soup because it is comforting, warming and filling. On the flip side I am often looking for fast recipes that I can work into my weekly rotation. That’s why I came up with this fast and one pot Lazy Chicken Noodle Soup recipe.

While this isn’t anything special it does hit the spot and save time. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did.

Pre Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 25 minutes

Yields: 10 servings

This entire meal took 25 minutes and I am not joking. First thing to note is that you have to follow the order to get it all done this quickly because you are always going to be doing two things.

Get your broth in the soup pot and turn it on high to get it to boil.

While that is warming you need to chop your celery and carrots. If there is time you should start “carving” your rotisserie chicken and get all the meat off the bone. Once the water is boiling you put the celery, carrots, orzo and bay leaves in. Reduce the heat and cook according to the box of orzo.

While the orzo is cooking it is time to finish “carving” the chicken. You can shred or chop up the chicken before putting into your soup. I choose to do a rough chop and find that it generally falls apart more in the soup once you mix it all together. So I wouldn’t recommend spending much time on shredding.

I prefer to turn the heat off with the orzo a 4-5 minutes away from being done. Since we aren’t draining the orzo this helps to prevent over cooking while the soup cools down and you prepare to serve. Once the heat is off I add the chicken and let it warm a little and allow the soup to cool down.

Serve and enjoy! I generally freeze a few cups in single serving style for another day.
