I agree that this was a little bland so i added extra chicken base to it along with extra lemon. I used 2 9oz cans of swanson chicken undrained. a little more than 1/3 cup rice. I didnt add the chicken till the end of the 20min cooking time since it was already cooked and didn't want it to be mush. i only used 2 eggs and felt that it was sufficient. Instead of adding you egg to the boiling hot soup try tempering it instead. Beat the egg then add lemon juice to it to thin, then whisk in one ladel of broth at a time to the egg mix (about 4 ladels total) this will eliminate the egg spliting and then you can add the egg mix directly to the soup ot without worry of the egg splitting or cooking while mixing in.

This soup was very good! I made it back in the fall and froze the leftovers. I pulled it out when I wanted something light when I was feeling under the weather, and it was the perfect (low fat) comfort food! Thank you for such a great recipe, I'm sure I'll be making it again this fall when the weather cools off.

Awesome soup. I am the worst cook when it comes to soup and this one is a winner. Would definitely make this again. I had turkey broth and turkey instead of chicken. I used brown rice. I cooked it in the broth alone for 40 minutes and then put in the vegetables for 20 minutes. Wow.

This is one of the most delicious things I've ever made, I absolutely loved it! The only thing I did differently was to add more lemon, but that's because I'm a lemon fiend. I didn't have any problem at all with blandness, probably because I tossed in a huge clump of chicken crystal things. This is now my favorite soup, thank you!

Loved it. Used barley instead of rice and added spinach at the very end.

I've had to triple this recipe whenever I make it. I do add a little extra vegetables but everyone who has tried it, loves it. It's had at least 20 thumbs up from my family and friends.

Fantastic! Such a nice flavor and consistency. I added more veggies (the same ones the recipe calls for - just more of them) just so I could stretch it out a bit. I had never made a soup before that had eggs added. Quite good! Thanks for sharing!

Really good soup. Used left over rice, so put it in at the same time as the chicken. Will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe!

Very good recipe me and my husband love it. This lemon chicken soup recipe has a clean and fresh taste. I like the fact that I have to season it myself.
