    Tee Lee's Note:

    This lemony, chicken rice soup traditionally uses eggs to thicken the broth, but to lighten it up, this version uses cream of chicken soup. Remember to use the fat-free and low-sodium variety of soup to keep it healthier. From Pampered Chef 'Good for You' Cookbook.

      My family lives it! Perfect for a nice easy meal and great for a cold day. I use orzo instead of rice.

      Very tasty. Quick and easy! I decided to make it a little more complicated on myself, and added a couple of finely chopped celery sticks when I was sauteeing the onion and carrots. Well, actually, I sauteed the onion for 4-5 min first, then added the carrots for 4-5 min, then the celery for 3 min, then the garlic for 2 min. I like to sautee little longer than most recipes ask for, I find it really melds the flavors of the base nicely. Then I added the rest of the ingredients, and let it simmer on the lowest heat for about an hour. Again, I had the time, and wanted to let the flavors gel, since usually soup/chili/stew tastes better the next day anyway I wanted to give it some time. In any case, the results were a hit with my entire extended family. Thanks for sharing, it made a great family dinner!

      The whole family really enjoyed this and my son went back for 2nds, me too! I used Cooked Chicken for Recipes - Barefoot Contessa Style to precook the chicken, cooled, cubed and set aside until 10 minutes before serving. Made as written. Served with The Ultimate Greek Salad for a perfect meal. Thanks for posting, Tee Lee. It's a keeper!
