This soup is very light and flavorful. It got two thumbs up from both my picky eaters. I froze about half of it in individual containers, and am so glad that I did. My daughter was sick yesterday and she pulled one out and heated it up, said it helped her feel a lot better.
I really enjoyed this soup a lot! I thought that the 7 cups of broth was too little though, and I would recommend using at least 10 cups for all the ingredients that it has. The flavor was outstanding, and I will certainly make it again. Thanks!
I really enjoyed the lemony flavor this soup has. I made a few adjustments to fit my tastes. I left out the chicken breasts, I'm slowly trying to become vegetarian. I left out the bay leaf because I didn't have any. I used white onion instead of yellow, 1 can of Veg-All instead of corn, and I added some pasta shells. Thanks for the recipe!
I made this soup exactly as written and we loved it! The combination of ingredients makes a wonderful tasting soup. Can't wait to make it again. Thank you so much, Erin, for sharing. :-)
Wonderfully soothing soup. Great combination of flavors I've been fighting a cold and this worked better than medicine. Lovely
This was excellent! I added 1 jalepeno, sliced in half, for the last 15 minutes. Removed the pepper prior to serving. Added just the right amount of heat.
We had this soup last Friday night and it was very special! I actually used a whole chicken, and then shredded the meat back into the soup. I left out the corn, there was no way my kids would touch it with corn in there, and I didn't let them know about the lemon until they had tasted the soup. This was a bigger hit with the adults than with the children, but a hit nonetheless. The lemon zest really makes it special. Next time I'm going to try a little lemongrass in there as well. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
I had to make a few changes to accommodate what I needed to use up and what flavors I was looking for because I was really using this recipe as a base to imitate a soup I had at a restaurant last summer. I used 10 cups broth (as another reviewer suggested),I used juice and rind from 2 lemons, canned fire roasted diced tomatoes, and frozen chopped onion instead of chopping an onion. I also left out the corn and added 3 cups of cooked brown rice at the very end. It was amazing! Thanks for getting me off to an awesome start! I will absolutely be making this again with my adjustments.
This was fantastic! I doubled everything but the chicken to good results. I also subbed lemon pepper for the salt and pepper at the end and added rice like another reviewer. Lucky me gets the leftovers for lunch! Thanks for a great meal!
Delicious! I added baby carrots and brown rice to stretch out the soup. The lemon broth is great with the wheat-ness of the brown rice. A hearty dish with out a lot of additional calories and fat. Thanks for sharing with us Pebbles.
