Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

While I tend to think soups are best in the winter, this one is so light it could transition you from winter into spring. The lemon flavors aren’t overwhelming, but if you want more of that acidity, feel free to squirt some fresh lemon over each individual bowl as you serve it.
