Fresh and lemony, the richness of this soup comes not from cream, but from beaten eggs.

Ingredients

Preparation

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add rice. Cook until rice is nearly done - firm, but mostly cooked – about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In a medium pot, heat oil over medium heat. Sauté onions until they are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock and water and bring to a bare simmer. Add rice to the onion-chicken broth mixture. Add diced chicken breast to the pot. Let cook 5 to 8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

In a small bowl, beat eggs and lemon juice together. Pour 2 cups of broth slowly into the bowl of egg and lemon, whisking continuously. Once all the broth is incorporated, add egg-broth mixture into the pot of chicken soup and stir to blend well throughout. Season with salt and pepper; garnish with parsley. Serve hot.

chicken

it isn't clear from the recipe whether the diced chicken should be pre-cooked or not.

any thoughts? thank you.

Chicken

The diced chicken should be uncooked when added to the pot. Hope this helps and happy cooking!

This recipe yielded 10 standard soup bowls full! Next time I would double the amount of rice, add a little more salt and more lemon. Wonderful winter warmer, even better on day 2.
