Comfort soup

I spotted this recipe last week on Megan's blog, Fried Green Pickles and decided to make it for A last night...Let me tell you - so delicious!

It was super easy to make and a perfect comfort food after a long, exhausting weekend.

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup
{Recipe and Picture via Real Simple}
Serves 4Hands-On Time: 15m Total Time: 30m



  1. In a large saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the orzo and boil until tender, 8 to 9 minutes. In a bowl, beat the egg yolks. Slowly whisk in 1 cup of the hot broth.
  2. Add the egg mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring, until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the chicken and lemon juice; season with ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Best part about it? It was only 260 calories per serving!


Till next time-


  1. Stealing this! Thanks for the recipe! I love trying something new!

  2. This looks delish! Once the weather cools down I will be making this in a heartbeat!

    BTW-So funny that you used to live in Roanoke! I miss it a lot, don't you?
