Quick Lemon Chicken Soup

Recipe by Bill Hilbrich

This is not Gramma's chicken soup, but it does provide comfort food fairly quickly to someone suffering from a cold. The lemon juice added to the bowl will add just enough tang to make it interesting enough to eat all of the soup.

Very good. I added a bit of celery too. Had a really good and differnt taste compared to your usual chicken noodle, kind of like the gourmet version. Great when you are sick too.
