I made this without the red pepper simply because I didn't have any at hand. It was still very good and in fact I'm not sure I'll include it next time, also I'll half the amount of chicken next time. The lovely broth and rice are the stars of this soup. It's rich and lemony and a real treat to this lemon lover.
