This Lemony Chicken with Stars Soup is sure to please both kids and adults alike! It's loaded with chicken, fun star pasta and veggies with a burst of lemon flavor and SUPER easy to make!
In a large pot over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the carrots, onions and celery and cook, stirring often, until they are somewhat softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and salt and pepper and cook for another minute. Add the chicken broth, tarragon, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for ten minutes.
Add the pasta and continue to cook at a simmer for about 10 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring often. Remove the bay leaves. Stir in the chicken and the lemon juice and heat through. The soup will thicken as it stands because of the added pasta, so if you need to thin it out just add more broth or a bit of water.
