This lemon chicken soup with rice is one dinner our whole family likes. I’m not crazy about lemon desserts, but I love me some savory lemon dishes. This one is probably my favorite. It is so simple and easy, perfect for cold days or for when you are feeling under the weather. It pairs great with red wine and crusty bread for dipping. Even my picky kids both love this soup!
I’ve been making this recipe for years, long before The Weary Chef was born. It is always one of my go-to dinners! It’s a great soup to make with rotisserie chicken, or you can cook chicken breasts just for this dish. It is just as good leftover, but you might want to keep some extra spinach on hand. I like to add some extra fresh spinach to mine when I reheat it just to brighten up the color and add even more wholesome goodness.
If you’re looking for a good soup pot, I recommend an enameled cast iron pot like the one shown here. I have a gorgeous Le Creuset pot that was a gift, but if you are on a budget, Lodge makes a less expensive version that I know you’ll love too. They both come in a variety of colors to suit your tastes. You can click these images for more details.
