Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

This recipe is from my Pampered Chef cookbook. It is a nice change from the old Chicken Noodle Soup (though I love my homemade version of that too, find it here). The lemon flavor gives it a very refreshing taste.
Greek Lemon Chicken Soup
2 c. chopped cooked chicken
2 medium carrots, peeled, halved and sliced
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 tsp. lemon zest
2 tb. fresh snipped parsley (or 1 tb. dried)
1 garlic clove
1 can cream of chicken soup
3 cans chicken broth
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2/3 c. uncooked long-grain white rice

Saute carrots, onion and garlic in a pan with a little oil for a few minutes. Stir in chicken, lemon juice and zest, soup, broth, pepper and rice. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer. Cover and simmer 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir parsley into soup just before serving.
