    My teen daughter NEVER has liked soup - she LOVES THIS SOUP! She says next time add chicken bits.

    Our rice turned out sticky and mushy last night. Yuck. Saw this recipe, and decided to try it with the leftovers. Cooked rice was added at the same place, and cooked with the onions just enough to take the chill from the frig off. Used a whisk during simmer to break up the rice more. Cooking time was only 8 mins. After reading the other post, we used 1 Tbsp less lemon juice. Delicious!

    Our family really liked this soup along with the salad. I may use a little less lemon juice next time and add lblack pepper. The lemon really adds to the soup's flavor. I will make this again. Easy to make and uses few ingredients. I cheated and beat the egg whites rather than whisk.
