Quick Lemon Chicken Soup

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.

    This soup is awesome! I passed this onto my mom a while ago, who owns a cafe, and they use this recipe in the cafe (and I am way overdue at rating this one). They do add rice rather than pasta. It's one of my favorite soups. Love the tang, it's addicting and I can't get enough of it. And yes, it's a wonderful soup to eat when you are sick! Thanks for posting this recipe!

    I halved the recipe and still had more than enough for 2 servings. I used orzo pasta, adding about 1/2 cup for the halved recipe. Although I like lemon juice, one tablespoon was a bit too much for me so I would halve that amount next time (this may have been due to the reduced amount of pasta I used).

    A delicious rich broth. I used acini de pepe pasta, and less lemon juice. I'll be making it again soon!

    This is a very tasty soup, Bill. I've made it a couple of times, now. I like the fact that I can make it last more than one meal for me, but yet there's not so much of it that it fills the freezer. The 2 cups of pasta are too much for me, so will reduce to 1 cup next time and see. I've been using my homemade chicken stock and whole wheat or whole grain pasta. Cheers!
