Chicken and Rice Soup

The egg in this soup makes for a super rich and creamy broth – this is kinda high cal for soup, but it is satisfying, filling and so worth it. Sometimes I just crave a soup rich with rice and chicken (and devoid of any veggies!) and this is it. It really hits the spot 🙂

7 cups fat free chicken broth
¾ lb. boneless skinless chicken breast
1 c long grain white rice
3 large eggs
1/3 c lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix broth and chicken in a pot and bring to a simmer on medium heat. Lower heat a bit and continue cooking until chicken is done, about 15 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove chicken to a plate and when cool, shred into bite sized pieces. Bring broth back to a good simmer and add rice and cook about 18 minutes and then put chicken back in the pot. Whisk eggs until frothy and then whisk in the lemon juice. While continuing to whisk, add 1 c hot broth to the egg mix. Then whisk the egg and lemon mix into the large pot. Add salt and pepper and serve immediately.
