Chicken Lemon Rice Soup

The spring weather has inspired a fresh soup! I don't know about you but in my house the flu keeps going around, once someone recovers they get it again and nothing soothes a sore throat like chicken soup and lemons! So why not combine them?

What you will need:
1 onion
3 cloves garlic minced
1 carrot chopped
6 cups chicken stock
1 lemon
1tsp basil
1 cup of long grain rice
2 tbsp. olive oil

In a large pot over medium heat, heat the olive oil then add in your carrots onion and garlic, sauté for about 5 minutes or until translucent.

Add in the chicken stock and simmer for about 15 minutes.

Add in the rice cover and simmer for about 15 more minutes or until rice is cooked.

Then add in the juice of 1 lemon (make sure there are no seeds!) And the basil. Stir all together. Enjoy!
