Leave the canned soup on the shelf and whip up this lemon chicken and orzo soup instead

We love soup, but so many canned versions are loaded with preservatives and other ingredients we can’t pronounce. Why rely on them when it’s so easy to make soup at home, either in the slow cooker or on the stove?

This lemon chicken and orzo soup is light, so it can be eaten year-round, and it’s also ridiculously healthy. Plus, every ingredient is natural, and it cooks in minutes. What’s not to love?
