This definitely needs less base. I used homemade (no salt) chicken broth and only 4 Tbsp of base, and it was still almost too salty for us. Next time I'll use 3, and if you're using commercial stock, I'd recommend using 2 and then tasting for seasoning. I used the juice of one whole lemon, plus the zest of half the lemon and it was perfect for our tastes. I didn't have leftover chicken, so I just poached a chicken breast in the broth while the vegetables were simmering for the 20 minutes. I precooked orzo pasta for this batch, but I think next time I will just add it uncooked a few minutes after I add the butter/flour mixture, to make this a true one pot meal. I kept everything else the same, and although it was a touch salty, we absolutely loved it. With a little less soup base, this is an easy 5 stars. Thank you for the recipe!
