Posted on


1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast*
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 large stalk celery, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cup dry white rice or orzo*
4 cups low sodium chicken stock
2 cups water
1 tablespoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
2 eggs*
salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken, onion, celery, garlic, rice or orzo, stock, water, 1 tablespoon kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in your slow cooker. Cook about 3 hours on high, or 4-5 hours on low.
  2. When the chicken is done, remove it from the slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Chop into chunks and place back in the slow cooker.
  3. Place the eggs in a medium bowl and beat lightly. Whisk in the lemon juice until combined. Place about 1 cup of hot soup broth in a measuring cup, and add a few droplets at a time to the egg-lemon mixture whisking constantly to temper the eggs. Continue adding the hot broth in a slow, steady stream while whisking constantly. After all the stock has been added, add the egg-lemon mixture to the soup in the crock pot and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste, serve, and enjoy!
