1 large egg
2 1/4 cups chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
About 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill weed
1/4 pound gjetost cheese, cut into 1/4-inch dice
4 to 6 cups hot cooked egg noodles or rice

2. Bring 2 cups broth to simmering in a 10- to 12-inch frying pan. As broth heats, drop level tablespoon portions of chicken into the liquid, keeping pieces slightly apart. Cover and simmer until meat is white in center (cut to test), 3 to 4 minutes.
