This lemony chicken soup was on Sandra Lee's cooking show today on the Food Network and made me SOOOOOOOOO hungry watching her! I am definitely going to be making this one for dinner tomorrow night!! This would be a terrific soup for a brunch, baby or bridal shower, birthday or anniversary party - any event that you want an elegant presentation with simple behind the scenes cooking! Pair it up with her Lemon-Herb Butter Basted Chicken, Lemon Garlic Broccoli, Lemon Pudding Brulee with Blueberries and Lemon Creme Martini's that I plan to post as well, and what a fabulous and refreshing menu! Theme your tables accordingly - and it says elegant spring or summer gathering! Thank you to Sandra Lee for another batch of fresh ideas!! Yummy!!

Very tasty! I used my own chicken and rice homemade soup that I pulled out of my freezer, instead of using canned soup. (I needed to use up the soup) For the chicken I used one chicken breast and cooked it using Mommy Diva's recipe for Lemon-Herb Butter-Basted Chicken (delicious have made it twice in less than a week). Easy recipe to throw together for a quick meal. Thanks Mommy Diva, fight like a girl. Hugs

I thought this was okay. Even after adding to it, it tasted like canned soup with fresh chicken. I think the concept is great and will keep working on it.
