Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup or Lemony Pasta Sauce

This is a fabulous thick creamy chicken pasta soup with a lovely lemon flavor. It is very easy to make using leftover chicken. I have also used this as a Pasta Sauce with rave reviews!

Lemon Orzo Chicken Soup Recipe

6 c. chicken stock
1/3 c. orzo pasta
1/2 c lemon juice
6 egg yolks
1+ c. shredded chicken
salt and pepper to taste

Bring the chicken stock to a boil in a saucepan on your stove. Add Orzo and cook 10 minutes. Take 1 c. of stock out and slowly and gently beat it by dribbles into 6 egg yolks. When you have added all the stock add this mixture back into the soup at a lower heat with the lemon juice. Then add the chicken, salt and pepper and you are ready to serve!
