In a large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the carrots, celery, onion and garlic, and cook for 5-6 mins, stirring often, until the onions have softened and started to turn translucent.
Add the broth, orzo, bay leaf, salt, oregano, basil, and thyme. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10-12 mins until the orzo is tender.
Optional for slightly thicker soup:
stir together the melted butter and flour until smooth. Whisk into soup and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
Stir in the chicken and lemon juice and cook until heated through, 2-3 minutes.
