Lemon Rice Soup

This is my version of a diner classic.

This is perfect for a Michigan May, where the weather can't make up its mind what it wants to be.

1 - 2 lemons juiced
2 eggs beaten
8 c. low sodium chicken broth
Nonstick cooking spray
2 - 3 each: carrots, celery chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed, chopped
2 - 3 c. cooked chicken chopped
2 c. rice
1/4 tsp. each: salt, pepper
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. each: oregano, dried parsley.

Rinse, cut ends from, chop celery and carrot, set aside.

Peel, rinse chop onion, set aside.

Peel, chop garlic, set aside.

Chop cooked chicken into a clean bowl, set aside.

 Cut lemon in half, set aside.

Preheat stove to medium high heat.

Lower heat to medium, spray nonstick spray in pan. 

Add onion, carrots, celery, salt, pepper, dried parsley, dried oregano, garlic to pan and saute for a few minutes.

Add chicken broth to pot and cook for 15 -  20 min.

Add uncooked rice and cook for 10 minures more.

While soup is cooking, squeeze lemon juice into beaten eggs.

Ladle some of the broth into egg mixture.

Lower heat to medium low.

While adding eggs slowly to broth, stir and cook soup for a few minutes more.

Serves 4.
