№ 454 - Chicken, Tomato and Orzo Soup

Original Recipe from here:  Eatwell 101

** The original recipe called for a small jar of sun dried tomatoes, when I went to open mine, the lid did not POP as it should have.  Being a fanatic about food safety, I tossed it and improvised. 

I did not add heavy cream.  I simply didn't like the sound of it - but the soup turned out fantastically - and I can't wait to have it again soon!
