Chicken Soup with Spinach and Orzo

Needed to use some spinach that Cheryl brought me so decided to try a recipe I found on the internet. Didn't have all the ingredients it called for so improvised and this is what I came up with. It turned out very good.

Chicken Soup with Spinach and Orzo

2 chicken thighs, skinned and fat removed
1/2 onion, diced
2 TB butter or oil (I used oil)
3 C water
1 stalk celery, diced
2 medium carrots, diced
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp thyme
1 can chicken broth
1/4 C orzo
1/2 bunch of spinach chopped
1 TB dill

Saute onion in oil or butter in bottom of pressure cooker till soft. Add water, celery, carrots, chicken, bay leaf and thyme. Cover and bring up to pressure and cook 12-15 minutes. Cool cooker quickly under cold water. Remove lid, add chicken broth and bring back to a boil. Add orzo and cook to al dente. Add spinach and cook till wilted. Add dill. Remove bay leaf and serve.
