    This was given to me by the local Greek restaurant owner in my town. It is her own personal way of creating this light but filling soup.

      I made this today and with a few minor adjustments. I added another egg and lemon plus the zest from all 3 lemons. Needed additional 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 freshly grated garlic cloves. Next time I will add some Greek oregano for added depth.

      We moved out of the state where our favorite little Greek restaurant is located. This is a wonderful match for what we loved and missed so much - and so simple!

      I used your recipe with a few exceptions to kind of give me some measurements on m y mother-in-law's recipe (she's greek). It turned out good, I just used her advice on a couple of different things: -I used 11 cups of water -I used a purdue chicken breast roaster (almost a whole chicken) and boiled in water for 1 hour with lid slightly on but not all the way -less than a cup of rice -three eggs -less than a cup of the ReaLemon brand lemonjuice I only used the meat from half of the chicken breast roaster It came out wonderful! My fiance says it was perfect, authentic and exactly how he remembers it growing up.
