Chicken-Zucchini Soup

(Muradiye Corbasi - Bursa - Ottoman Kitchen)

Chicken-Zucchini Soup
1 chicken breast, ~150g, skinless, boneless, cut in small cubes
1 tbsp butter
1/4 cup hot water
1 small carrot, peeled, cut in small cubes
1 small zucchini, peeled, cut in small cubes
2 cup hot chicken stock
2 tbsp orzo
1 tsp lemon juice

Yogurt Sauce:
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp flour

Melt the butter in a pot, add the chicken cubes in and saute for about 2-3 minutes while stirring. Then add 1/4 cup hot water and cook until a little bit water is left.  Add the zucchini, carrot, chicken stock, orzo, lemon juice, salt and pepper, stir. Cook until the orzo is soft at medium-low heat.

Meanwhile in a bowl, mix yogurt and flour. After the orzo is cooked, take a few spoons of liquid from the pot and mix into the bowl. Then slowly pour the mixture into the pot while stirring very slowly. Cook for 10 more minutes on very low heat. Serve while still hot.

2 servings.
