How to Make AVGOLEMONO (CHICKEN SOUP WITH EGG AND LEMON)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put the chicken in a large pot and cover with water. Cook over medium heat, skimming the foam that rises to the surface, until tender, about 1 hour. Transfer the chicken to a plate and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the rice to the chicken broth and season with salt. Cook until soft, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • 2Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until almost stiff peaks form. Add the yolks, one at a time, lightly beating after each addition. Add the lemon juice and beat 1 minute. Remove a cup of the warm broth from rice mixture and slowly beat into the egg mixture until blended. With a wooden spoon, gently stir the egg mixture into soup (do not stir vigorously).
  • 3There should be a layer of egg foam resting on the top of the soup. Serve the chicken alongside the soup.
    Serves 4 to 6
