How to Make Avgolemono

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium, heat the oil. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes, or until slightly golden.
  2. Add the broth, then increase the heat to high and bring to a simmer.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and, keeping the broth at a simmer, add the chicken. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the chicken is mostly cooked through. Add the cooked rice and stir well. Return to a gentle simmer.
  4. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until smooth, then beat in the lemon juice. Working quickly, whisk the egg mixture while you drizzle in a ladleful of the hot broth from the pot. Drizzle in another ladleful, whisking all the while, then transfer the hot egg-lemon mixture back to the pot, whisking as you add it. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  5. Stir in the parsley and peas, then return to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper, then serve hot.
