How to make it

  • Combine broth and rice in saucepan.
  • Bring to a simmer (not a boil)
  • Cook for 15 to 20 minutes until rice is done.
  • Add roasted chicken to pot.
  • Remove from heat.
  • While rice is cooking, beat eggs vigorously in a bowl until frothy.
  • Whisk in lemon juice.
  • While whisking, slowly add 1 cup of broth into the egg mixture.
  • Whisk this mixture into the remaining broth, rice and chicken in the pot.
  • Cook for about 4 minutes, stirring constantly until soup thickens.
  • To avoid curdling, DO NOT BOIL!
  • The soup is ready when it coats the back of a spoon OR reaches 160 degrees F.
  • After removing from heat, season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Garnish with parsley, if desired.

    I'm a lemon fan and have been for as long as I can remember, jim. After a little settling of my holiday doldrums, I'm going to post my dad's recipe for pasatini which is a pure chicken broth with bread noodles (with lots of lemon in them!) cooked right in the stock. This is the best and my favorite soup of all time. Thanks, jim.

    Actually 4 ounces of lemon juice in 32 ounces of stock isn't that much. I hope you get to try it and end up liking it, points.

    This soup is killer. We typically serve almost every soup with Lemon wedges. It is especially good in chicken soup... thanks for the recipe...
