Lemon Chicken Soup

A zesty, refreshing dish that’s perfect for cool spring evenings.

Lemon Chicken Soup

There’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh fruit, especially lemons. They’re one of my all time favorite ingredients. And I make this dish with the lemons I pick from my own tree right in my backyard.



1 tablespoon olive oil

1 onion, minced

3-5 garlic cloves, minced

½ chicken with bone and skin attached

3 bay leaves, broken

1 can chicken broth

Water (to cover)

2 cups chopped vegetables (potatoes, zucchini, carrots, celery)

2 cups chopped tomatoes

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

Dash of lemon pepper seasoning

1 small bunch cilantro, for garnish

Juice of 1 large lemon


1. Add oil to large stockpot on medium-high heat. When hot, brown onions, garlic and chicken in oil. Add bay leaves.

2. Cover with broth and water. Boil till meat falls off the bone. Remove bones and some skin.

3. Add vegetables, salt, pepper and lemon pepper seasoning.

4. Cook till vegetables are fork tender. Dish into bowls and top with cilantro and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Serves 4
