Chicken and Orzo Soup

Chicken and Orzo Soup

شوربة لسان العصفور بالدجاج

It is full of flavors, delicious and easy. My all time favorite soup.


  • 2.5 Liter water (hot)
  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 2 small cardamoms
  • 2 small cinnamon sticks
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 3 medium tomatoes (freshly squeezed)
  • 2-3 tablespoon tomato paste
  • ¾ cup orzo

Parsley (minced)


Heat 1 L of water over high heat and stir chicken breasts for about 30 minutes or until they are cooked.

Take out the chicken breasts, dispose the water and shred them into pieces (you can cut it into cubes before stirring them in the boiling water)

Heat 1.5 L of clean water over high heat. Once it starts boiling add the chicken, fresh tomato juice, tomato paste and stir for 3-4 minutes.

Add the cinnamon powder, cardamom powder, salt, white pepper, small cardamoms, cinnamon sticks and stir for 2 minutes.

Add the orzo, cover the pot and cook them all over medium heat for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle the parley and serve it hot.
