How to Make Lemon & Chicken Soup

  • 2Add the lemon rind and juice to the pan, together with the chicken stock. Bring slowly to a boil over low heat and simmer for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3Add the spaghetti to the pan and cook for 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and white pepper and add the heavy cream. Heat through, but do not allow the soup to boil or it will curdle.
