Recipe for family meals :

Quick Lemon Chicken Soup

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "This is not Gramma's chicken soup, but it does provide comfort food fairly quickly to someone suffering from a cold. The lemon juice added to the bowl will add just enough tang to make it interesting enough to eat all of the soup".


1 small onion, cut in 1/2 inch pieces
1 carrot, washed,but not peeled and cut into penny size rounds
1 clove garlic, crushed and diced
1 boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
1 teaspoon basil
2 (15 ounce) cans chicken stock
2 cups dry pasta (I like flat noodles)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • Heat the oil in a medium size pan, melt the butter in the oil and then sauté onions until transparent.
  • Add garlic and the chicken.
  • Stir until meat turns white.
  • Add carrots, basil, and chicken stock, and simmer for 30 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
  • Add pasta and simmer for an additional 15 minutes.
  • After the soup has been poured into a bowl, add one tablespoon of lemon juice to each serving.
