Lemon Chicken Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by NurseJaney

This is NOT "authentic" or "Greek", but a really tasty QUICK and hearty soup for lunch. I THINK it may have been in a very early edition of Quick Cooking. The chicken is optional, but if you happen to have leftovers, adds to satisfaction.

This was a lovely soup NurseJaney. We really enjoyed this bright and intense soup. The fresh lemon juice really made the soup pop. The soup was tasty and filling, quick and very easy to make. I added some roasted chicken to the soup. Thanks so much for sharing.
