There is nothing quite as comforting and cozy as chicken soup. This recipe of Lemon Chicken Soup with Orzo adds a wonderful citrus and creamy flavor to the classic.
It's June in western Montana, and that means rain. In the arid west, we are always grateful for rain this time of year before the hot, dry summer hits us.
But that also means it can get quite chilly this time of year. In our neck of the woods, June is the perfect time for Lemon Chicken Soup with Orzo - warm and satisfying with a fresh lemon flavor that reminds us that summer is right around the corner.
The recipe requires that you temper the egg before adding it to the soup. If you've never done that before, don't be intimidated. I remember the first time I had to temper an egg for a recipe, I was worried that I'd end up with scrambled egg instead of a smooth and creamy mixture. All my worry was unnecessary because it isn't hard at all. Just pour slowly and constantly whisk as you add the broth.
