Bring the broth to a boil in a saucepan. Stir in the orzo and chicken. Simmer for 11 minutes or until the orzo is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add the egg gradually, whisking constantly. Ladle into soup bowls and serve immediately. Do not reheat.
