  • 2 quarts low sodium chicken broth
  • 12 oz. cooked, chopped chicken
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ⅔ cup uncooked white rice
  • Pepper and fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


Bring chicken broth to simmer

Whisk eggs and lemon juice

Add 1 cup of hot broth to egg/lemon mixture very slowly to prevent lumping – set aside

Reduce heat to medium and add rice

Cook 5-10 minutes

Add Chicken

Cook until rice is tender

Slowly whisk in egg/lemon/broth mixture – too fast may create scrambled eggs!

Cook 5 more minutes.  Mixture will thicken as it sits.

Ladle into bowl

Garnish with pepper and fresh parsley
