Should you happen to be feeling a little under the weather, this soup is delicious and nourishing and happens to be an old favourite.

Ingredients:
2 chicken leg/thigh pieces
1 cup of parboiled Rice
2 Eggs
1 Fresh Lemon
2 tablespoons of Olive or Vegetable Oil
Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Fill a medium casserole 1/2 full of water and bring to a boil.
Cut chicken pieces in two, wash and add to boiling water, together with the oil.
Cover and continue to boil until tender.
Add 1 cup of Mr. Goudas Parboiled Ricer should you like your rice to be firm after cooking, or 1 Cup of Mamma Lucia Italian Style Rice if you like your rice to be softer.

Add salt and black pepper to taste and continue cooking until rice is tender.
Turn off the stove.

Break the 2 eggs into a big glass bowl, have the juice of 1 fresh lemon ready (remove the seeds). Whisk the eggs and slowly add lemon juice.
Continue whisking the eggs and lemon juice until it becomes bubbly.
Without stopping take a cup of juice from the casserole and slowly pour into the eggs/lemon mixture, continue whisking the mixture.
Add a second cup of juice from the casserole and continue whisking.

The next step will be to pour this mixture into casserole.
To do so, you have to be very careful and pour the mixture into the casserole slowly as you now begin beating the contents of the casserole.
When you are finished pouring, hold the handle of the casserole and gently shake it.
It is important to follow the directions in the finishing stages correctly because otherwise, if you do not beat the eggs properly or do not pour it slowly, the eggs will cook and the soup will have flakes of cooked eggs on the surface.
This is not what we need.

The above recipe is one of the favourites of Mr. Goudas and he recommends it to people who are suffering from a cold and want to have a very light but nutritional soup.

Needless to say, that there is a song with the lyrics as follows:
Goudas Rice is very nice.
Goudas Rice is very nice
It is good for pelau and Chinese fried rice
So take my advice and buy Goudas Rice.

Bon Apetit and feel well.
