1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ground black pepper

4 eggs

4 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

2-1/2 cups cooked chicken, diced

2 scallions, sliced thin

1 tbsp parsley, minced

1) In large soup pot over medium-high heat, bring broth to a boil; add orzo, salt and pepper and reduce heat to medium; cook 10 minutes until orzo is tender

2) Meanwhile, in medium bowl whisk egg and lemon juice until well combined; pour about 1 cup of hot broth into egg mixture and mix well; stir egg-broth mixture into soup and cook about 2 minutes until soup thickens

3) And chicken to soup and, stirring continuously, cook 2-3 minutes; remove soup from heat and serve topped with scallions and parsley

Serves: 6-8 dinner-sized portions
