Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Studentchef

From the cookbook 365 Ways to cook Chicken. It doesn't say which part of the chicken to use, so my suggestion is to base the chicken part on other similar recipes.

Made vegan style for ZWT9 Greek wedding challenge. Can't really review the recipe because of the alterations. Vegan doesn't work so well - you really need the eggs.

  2. Remove 1/2 cup soup and gradually whisk iit into the egg yolks. Stir the mixture back into the soup. Add chicken and heat through, but do not boil or eggs will curdle.
