    It tasted kinda plain but felt nutritious. Maybe need to add more spices.

    So good! Perfect for a nice, warm, but fresh-tasting pick me up.

    Wonderful. Very comforting, thick consistency.

    I was surprised at how good it was. I will definitely be making this again. I didn’t have fresh dill so I added 1 teaspoon of freeze dried dill and I thought it was perfect. I may try it with some fresh chopped spinach and a little shredded carrot for color.

    This recipe was great! I used lemon juice instead of a real lemon and cut up the chicken before I added it to the broth. Since I had already cut up the chicken, I never removed it from the broth and it made it much more tender. The soup also kept the consistency that was described even with these changes.

    This is an absolutely lovely soup, creamy, aromatic but not heavy. Will make it time and time again. PS Need a shortcut? Use rotisserie chicken and enhance the broth with some of the drippings.

    Delicious, great for winter colds! I didn't have any chickpeas so used carrots instead. Think more broth needed too, but yum yum!

    Yummy! Just a little dry I'd add more stock next time! That being said I'd like to make it again! Different refreshing taste!

    I used some leftover chicken from a previous day's meal and it worked out just the same. Really delicious and flavorful!

    This is a simple and elegant soup and I really wanted to love it, but for me the flavor fell flat. Next time I would saute finely chopped onion and garlic in olive oil, seasoned with s&p first before proceeding to the broth portion of the directions. The lemon and rice (though I would use orzo) quantities should be doubled. I did not care for the dill flavor in this soup and added oregano. Next time I would only use oregano. I loved the addition of the egg which gave the soup a silky texture without a lot of calories. I also used corn instead of garbanzo beans for texture. I think this is a soup that can easily be personalized based on your preferences.

    I made this with the dill/garlic and omitted the chick peas. It was delicious. Hadn't cooked separating the egg with that method before, it went well and no curdling. Handy method to know. Will definitely make it again.
