Servings 5


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small white onion finely chopped
  • 6 cups gluten free chicken stock
  • ½ cup uncooked Arborio rice
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 cups cooked chicken diced
  • Kosher salt

  • Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or soup pan set over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add the rice, reduce the heat, cover the pan, and simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender.
  • In a mixing bowl whisk the eggs until they are very smooth. Add the lemon juice and whisk. Add 1 cup of the hot broth to the egg mixture and whisk. Set aside.
  • Add the chicken to the soup, season to taste with salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes to heat up the chicken.
  • Take the soup off the heat and whisk in the egg-lemon mixture, adding the egg mixture slowly while whisking.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley and lemon zest if desired.
