    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    If you prefer a stronger lemon flavor then increase the juice to 1/2 cup that will give you an extreme lemon flavor, use fresh lemon juice only --- you may use as much cooked rice and chicken as desired, if you have ever had this soup in a Greek restaurant or in Greece and enjoyed it, then you will *love* this! --- homemade chicken broth is always better to use but canned will do fine for this recipe --- see my Kittencal's Best Chicken Stock/Broth (Crock Pot Option)

      I had heard about this Greek lemon soup a few months ago and thought it might be something I'd like to try. I cant compare as it was the first time I'd ever tried it and was very impressed. It has a lovely velvety texture and the flavours are really great together. The amount of lemon juice is fine at 1/3 of a cup, in my opinion any more would be too much. Thanks for sharing.

      I made this today and was disappointed. I expected it to taste like the soup at our favorite Greek restaurant. Even though it was good it just wasn't the same. I tried to make it by the recipe however, it doesn't say when to add the lemon juice. Which could have an effect on why mine didn't taste like I wanted it too.
