I happened to be visiting my daughter and out of the blue got sick, no warning at all! The cold I got went straight into my chest, then into a cough that took all my energy. This made my visit into a lay on the couch type of visit. I seriously slept until it was time to go see my granddaughters dance in a performance. (They danced their hearts out!) 

While visiting my daughter made me soup to help me feel better! It was so good. I tasted a flavor in the soup that I didn’t recognize from my traditional chicken soups and asked what was in it. It was LEMON in chicken soup. 

This small addition to the soup brings a bright flavorful addition that you will love. When I got home still feeling under the weather I made a big pot of this lemony chicken soup. I asked her to share her own recipe with me and added two additional ingredients making it such a flavorful chicken soup with lemon. I am excited to share this yummy chicken soup recipe with you!

Cook your noodles separately in a pot according to the noodle directions for al dente

The reason I like to cook my noodles separate is then they don’t soak up all the broth! Especially, if there are leftovers. (I keep the noodles in a glass container with a lid) It is easy to add the pre-cooked noodles to each bowl pf the lemon chicken soup when serving. TIP– Rinse the noodles with cold water (in the colander) to keep them from sticking! 

I hope you get to enjoy a big bowl of lemon chicken soup soon! Pair it with biscuits, saltine mini crackers, soup crackers or bread.

Notes

The reason I like to cook my noodles separate is then they don’t soak up all the broth! It is easy to add the pre-cooked noodles to each bowl of the lemon chicken soup when serving. But, you can cook the noodles in the soup if you wish. Don't add more than 1 cup! Allow about 12 minutes at least for the noodles to soften, adding them in the last 15 minutes of cook time.

I shared a video to help you with a slightly different recipe for Lemon Chicken. I love the addition of fresh flat-leaf parsley and green onion or chives for garnish and flavor. You can easily add this to our recipe too.

Other pasta noodles are easy to add if you don't have egg noodles. Just cook per package directions.
