Greek-Style Chicken Soup with Orzo and Spinach

Slow Cooker Greek-Style Chicken Soup with Orzo and Spinach
Serving Size: 6

3 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 teaspoon lemon zest
5 cups chicken stock
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 cup cooked chicken breast, cubed
1/3 cup dried orzo or rosamarina pasta (or other small pasta)
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. dried mint
4 cups fresh baby spinach

Place the garlic, juice, zest, stock, and onion in a 4 quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Stir in the chicken and cook for 30 minutes on High. Add the orzo and spinach. Stir and continue to cook on high for an additional 15 minutes. Stir before serving.

NOTE: Lemon zest adds a bright, robust flavor to this simple soup. (Be sure to take off only the outermost part of the peel where the aromatic essential oils that hold the flavor are located. The white pith underneath is bitter and inedible.)
