Lemon adds a pop of bright flavor, while brown rice rounds out this filling soup.

Lemons have tons of health benefits, making them the perfect addition to our Slow Cooker Greek Lemon Chicken Soup. We’ve loaded it with vegetables to increase the nutrient profile and used egg yolks as a high protein thickener. This soup gets its amazing flavors from slow cooking the chicken, vegetables, and lemon zest in a slow cooker on low for hours. Lemon adds a pop of bright flavor, while brown rice rounds out this filling soup.

Serve this lemon chicken soup on cold nights or just when you want to harness the immune-boosting benefits of the nutritious ingredients in it. It would be wonderful with warm bread or even Clean Eating Grilled Cheese for an ultimate comfort food meal.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups chicken broth low-sodium
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 leek diced
  • 3 carrots diced
  • 1 sweet onion diced
  • 1 lemon large, zested and juiced
  • 2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup brown rice cooked
  • dill chopped, for garnish

Instructions

  • Add broth, garlic, leek, carrots, onion, lemon zest, chicken, salt, and pepper into the slow cooker. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours or high for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Mix together the lemon juice and egg yolks until frothy. Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred. Add lemon juice and egg mixture in and whisk into the soup -- this should make it thicker and creamier! Then, add the shredded chicken and brown rice, cook on medium heat and stir continuously for a few, 3-5, minutes. Serve with chopped dill on top!

    1. Rachel, Yes, but please recheck the instructions. I made this again recently and thinks it’s best to cook the egg for a few minutes. If you do that step, it should be fine to reheat and freeze leftovers.
