Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup

This is so delicious! 


1 package boneless skinless chicken tenders cut into 1 inch cubes
Salt and Pepper
3 Garlic cloves minced
3 carrots peeled and diced
1/2 onion diced
3 celery stalks diced
1\4 to 1\2 cup chopped fresh spinach
1-2 teaspoons Thyme
5 cups chicken stock (or you can use low fat broth)
1 cup water
3 bay leaves
3/4 cup Orzo
1 sprig rosemary- fresh
Juice of 1 1/2 Lemon (cut the other half into thin slices to add to your bowl)
2 tablespoons chopped parsley - fresh

*I used non stick spray (coconut oil) instead of butter or olive oil when browning the chicken. I also never use measuring spoons or cups...

***brown chicken in 1\4 cup stock with salt and pepper,  when done add carrots, garlic, onion, celery, and thyme with a bit more chicken stock so it does not burn until veggies are soft, add everything else but the lemon juice and parsley. I cooked mine over low heat for about an hour then added the parsley and lemon juice. Then cooked for about another 10 minutes. I added a slice of lemon to each bowl when served.
