Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 cups chicken broth (homemade or one 49 oz.
1 can chicken broth)
2 chicken breasts (frozen OK)
2 cups water
3/4 cup uncooked white rice
2 lemons or large limes (I use whichever is
3 large eggs
Salt & Pepper
Poach the chicken breasts in the chicken broth (don't boil, as the chicken becomes tough). When the chicken is done, remove it from the broth, shred, and set aside. Add the water and rice to the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until rice is cooked. Combine the eggs and the juice of the lemons/limes in a jar and shake until frothy (break the yokes first with a fork).
Add this mixture bit by bit to the broth/rice, which should be on "low." Stir
after each addition. I shake the egg/lemon after each addition to keep it frothy. After incorporating the egg/lemon mixture, add the chicken and season to taste with S & P. You may want to season with a little more lemon or lime juice (I do) or add water if you think the soup is too thick. I usually leave it on the burner on low for another 5 minutes to ensure that the egg is cooked and the flavors have blended.
