Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

This soup typically uses eggs to thicken the broth. We've lightened up the recipe by using fat-free cream of chicken soup.


  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 2 medium carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1-2   lemons
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
  • 1   garlic clove, pressed
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) 98% fat-free reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 3 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) 100% fat-free chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2/3 cup uncooked long-grain white rice


  1. Chop chicken, carrots and onion and using Food Chopper. Zest one lemon using Zester/Scorer to measure 1 teaspoon zest. Finely snip zest using Professional Shears. Juice lemons using Juicer to measure 1/4 cup juice. Snip parsley using Professional Shears; set aside.

  2. Lightly spray (4-qt.) Casserole with nonstick cooking spray over medium heat until shimmering. Add carrots, onion and garlic pressed with Garlic Press; cook and stir 2 minutes.
