Umami-rich soup. While a pinch of salt ties together the flavors of chicken and vegetables during cooking, adding MSG at the end with the fresh dill and lemon juice really has a synergistic effect, enhancing the herbaceous notes and highlighting the powerful pop of bright acid, and nailing that balance of savory and tart.
