Chef Dad's Italian Chicken Soup

1 roasted rotisserie chicken (fresh "to go" from your grocer's deli)
32 oz. chicken stock
3 cups water
1/4 cup (4 tbsp.) butter
1 1/2 cups celery (diced)
1 1/2 cups carrots (about two large or three medium-sized, peeled and diced)
1 onion (diced)
3 tbsp. garlic (diced fine)
2 bay leaves
Kosher salt
Fresh cracked pepper
2 tsp. oregano flakes
3/4 cup dry (uncooked) orzo* or any tiny pasta

1) Remove skin from your roasted chicken then peel away meat from the bird. When doing so, don't throw away the juices from the bottom of the container. Pull apart the meat into desired size pieces, pour juices over the top, and then set aside.

2) In a large soup pot over medium-high heat, melt butter, then add celery, carrots, onion and garlic.  Add 2 teaspoons of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and the oregano flakes then stir well. Sauté for about eight minutes until veggies become tender. Add your chicken stock, water and bay leaves. Increase heat to high and bring up to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium then add the pasta and stir frequently, especially in the beginning to avoid your pasta sticking to the bottom of the pot. Cook until pasta is tender (about eight minutes). Remove bay leaves then add your chicken. Warm the chicken for a minute or so. Taste for additional salt and pepper, if necessary, and make your adjustments a little at a time then serve immediately.

Cook's Notes: Orzo is very small Italian pasta which is perfect for soups. While the recipe calls for just 3/4 cup of it, you can use up to 1 cup as long as you plan to eat the entire batch within an hour simply because that pasta will continue to expand and absorb all of your broth. You can always use other tiny pastas or 2 cups of cooked white rice instead of the orzo. If you have some leftovers the next day and the pasta or rice has absorbed most of your broth, simply add more chicken stock and a dash more salt and pepper on your stove when reheating. 

This recipe makes 8-10 bowls or about 16 cups.

Doggie Boot Camp at Malinda’s Pampered Pets

On Thursday, Nov. 13 at 6:30 p.m., Malinda’s Pampered Pets will be helping plump pets throughout the Valley shed pounds and get back to their breed’s ideal weight at Bella’s Boot Camp, a six-week program held quarterly by the Phoenix-based pet spa and boutique.

The six-week camp will teach pet owners vital tools to help them maintain a healthy weight for their pet, including exercise routines, the proper food and treats to be giving their pets, and weekly weigh-ins, in addition to participating in Canine Colors, a personality typing program for dogs and their parents.

“We’ve seen some truly amazing results with this program,” said Malinda Malone, owner of Malinda’s Pampered Pets. “Each breed has a specific weight range they should be within, and no matter the amount of weight gain, this program helps both pets and owners get back on track to keeping them happy and healthy.”

The first week of camp will include weigh-ins and measurements, in addition to putting a food and exercise plan in place for each pup. The weeks to follow include dental care, weight management, the Canine Colors program and doggie sports, with the camp culminating in a “Biggest Loser” style weigh-in and puppy “pizza” party.

Each pet and their owner also receive a training notebook, program T-shirt, food scoops, a pack of Leanlix, dog food and their own Canine Colors book with dog treats.

To sign up for Bella’s Boot Camp ($150/pet), call Malinda’s Pampered Pets at 480-753-5766, or visit for more information.
