This is a lemony version of avgolemono. If that makes you nervous, cut back the lemon whisked in with the eggs to 1/4 cup and add more to taste. (Note: the lemon flavor gets more concentrated as the soup thickens. Use caution in using more than 1/2 cup (the juice of two lemons).

In the event, the soup is too lemony or thick for your tastes, you can thin it with another cup or two of chicken stock
