This is exactly like my Greek friend, Maria, makes this soup. It's OK, but not quite to my liking. I need stronger flavours. So, here's what I did (for those that need that extra punch in a soup).
I used a whole chicken, put it in a large pot, added just enough water to cover the chicken (a bit of the chicken was still above the water. This makes a stronger tasting broth).
I added 3 carrots, 3 stalks of celery, a whole onion, a few garlic cloves, a parsnip, salt AND 4 packets of chicken bouillion. I simmered on low about 1 1/2 hours. Strained the broth, chopped up the chicken, saved the cooked veggies to eat later, and followed the recipe for the rest.
It's such a refeshingly clear tasting soup. Never be afraid to alter a recipe. What's posted is one person's taste buds speaking and we're all different. Taste as you go... that's my rule.
I'd suggest you cut back on the lemon to half, then taste and add more if you need it.
