soft. In a large measuring cup, place lemon juice with one cup of
reserved chicken stock. Set aside. In large mixing bowl beat eggs on
high speed for 4 minutes. Reduce speed to medium and continue beating
while you slowly add lemon juice and stock mixture. Into same mixture,
pour 2 cups of reserved chicken stock slowly, while continuously
mixing. Turn mixer off. Pour egg and lemon mixture slowly into
saucepan of rice and stock, stirring continually. Continue to stir for
one minute while soup cooks. Remove from heat. Salt and pepper to
taste. Serve hot. NOTE: You can chop up the cooked chicken into small
chunks and add it to the soup. Or use the chicken to make chicken
salad, sandwiches, etc. Courtesy of Shareware RECIPE CLIPPER 1.0
