I love a comforting bowl of chicken noodle soup on a chilly winter day.  Especially if I’m feeling under the weather.

This Lemon Pepper Chicken Soup is bright and peppy.  It will wake up your taste buds, that’s for sure.

I used Meyer Lemons for a mild citrus flavor and Fresh Cracked Pepper for some heat.

This chicken soup is perfectly seasoned thanks to my Cole & Mason Derwent Pepper Mill.

I made this fancied up chicken soup then used star pasta! hehe

Use whatever pasta you prefer.  I cook my pasta separately so the leftovers don’t turn into a soggy mess.

Don’t forget the crackers!

  1. What a delicious soup and I bet it’s extra tasty with lemon pepper in it.

  2. Love that pepper mill! I actually just saw it reviewed on ATK the other day! And this soup looks fabulous! So comforting.

  3. Soup looks amazing!! I need those grinders in my life… how beautiful that would be in my kitchen… and they would actually work! Adding to Christmas wish list.. 🙂

  4. I love your photos, they make me soooo hungry! Just beautiful

  5. Just bought my first batch of meyer lemons for the season, I think I know what I need to make!

  6. Could you do this in a crockpot instead? Would it end up tasting the same?

  7. I have 5 Meyer lemons, woot, and I’m glad to see that you cook the pasta separately to avoid that stew like soup. It’s what I do with any starch to be served with soup.

  8. Stefanie says:

    I can’t get Meyer lemons…how much zest & juice should I use with regular lemons?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      You should be able to sub in regular lemons. Meyer lemons are a bit milder, so you can decrease the juice/zest a little bit if you prefer. Enjoy!

  9. Kathy Mai says:

    How many servings is this?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      This will easily serve 6. The 3.5 quart pot will be about half full with soup. Enjoy!
