Greek Chicken Soup - Avgolemono

Second version of soup - we're going to get Carlene back on her feet!!!

Chicken Soup, Take Two (Avgolemono)

boneless chicken thighs or chicken breast
2 carrots, peeled, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 medium onion, peeled and sliced
6 garlic cloves, crushed
2 bay leaves
48 oz chicken broth
pinch thyme
small knob (1/2") of fresh ginger - peeled, cut into extremely small dice

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

8 ounces uncooked orzo (rice-shaped pasta), cooked separately

Dump the first set of ingredients into your pressure cooker and process for 15 minutes.

Remove the chicken and cut into small pieces

Add the parsley, lemon juice and rind to the soup and stir

Cook the orzo separately and add it to the bowls at serving

(Store leftover pasta separately from the rbroth as the pasta will continue to absorb the broth.)
