  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast*
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 large stalk celery chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ cup dry white rice or orzo*
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the chicken, onion, celery, garlic, stock, water, 1 tablespoon kosher salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in your slow cooker. Cook about 3 hours on high, or 4-5 hours on low, adding the rice or orzo during the last hour or so of cooking time to prevent overcooking.
  • When the chicken is done, remove it from the slow cooker and allow to cool slightly. Chop into chunks or shred, and place back in the slow cooker.
  • Place the eggs in a medium bowl and beat lightly. Whisk in the lemon juice until combined.
  • Place about 1 cup of hot soup broth in a measuring cup, and add a few droplets at a time to the egg-lemon mixture whisking constantly to temper the eggs. Continue adding the hot broth in a slow, steady stream while whisking constantly.
  • After all the stock has been added, add the egg-lemon mixture to the soup in the crock pot and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste, serve, and enjoy!


  • Use bone-in skinless chicken breasts to add flavor to the soup. Once the chicken is cooked, simply shred the chicken and discard the bones.
  • You may also use leftover cooked orzo pasta or rice and add at the end of cooking time. Just heat until warm.
  • If you like your soup even richer, add an additional egg.
