1 rotisserie chicken, shredded or cubed to your preference
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 large carrots, diced

Directions:
Heat olive oil in a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrots, celery, and thyme, stirring occasionally, for five minutes. Add five cups of broth, bring to a boil and add the orzo. Simmer for eight minutes on low. The soup should not be boiling at this point.

Beat eggs and whisk in lemon juice gradually. Warm remaining one cup of broth until hot but not boiling. Gradually add the broth to the egg-lemon mixture, whisking constantly. Add lemon mixture to soup, stir until thickened. Add chicken to soup, and finally, add salt and pepper to taste.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I started making this soup as an easy, healthy take on the traditional Greek avgolemono soup and literally threw away all of the rest of my chicken noodle soup recipes. It is tasty, hearty, and tastes possibly even better the second day (if it makes it to then!) when it has had the chance to thicken.
