  • 5 small chicken drum sticks (skin removed)
  • 4 medium potatoes peeled and cubed
  • ¾ cup long grain white rice (I use Basmati rice)
  • 2 medium carrots peeled and sliced
  • 2 large celery ribs chopped
  • 2 tbsp Vegeta All Purpose Seasoning and Soup Mix (see note) or chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 medium lemon juiced
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ½ cup chopped fresh dill


  • To a large, 5-quart pot, add chicken, potatoes, carrots, celery and rice. Fill the pot with clean water and bring to a boil. Add the seasoning and cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes, until chicken and vegetables are cooked through.
  • Reduce the heat to low. With thea help of a fork, remove the chicken out offrom the soup and leave it in a cold place for 5 minutes to cool down. Meanwhile, prepare an egg yolk mixture.
  • In a medium sized bowl, beat the lemon juice with egg yolks. Set aside.
  • Shred the cooled chicken. Add the chicken and any accumulated juices from the chicken plate back to the pot.
  • Ladle 1 cup of hot broth into the bowl with the egg yolk mixture and stir a little. Add 1 more cup of hot broth to the bowl and stir again.
  • Pour the egg yolk mixture back into the pot. Stir well to blend. Taste for seasoning.
  • Add the dill, stir it again, cover with a lid and let the soup rest for 10 minutes before serving.


I use Vegeta All Purpose Seasoning and Soup Mix and I LOVE this seasoning. Check it out on Amazon, I am sure that you will love it too!
