This delicious Greek lemon chicken soup recipe is my interpretation of a traditional Avgolemono. The lemon juice gives this creamy chicken soup an interesting flavor, making it more comforting. The best part? It only takes 30 minutes to prepare.
If you opt for store-bought chicken broth, always check the sodium content label. Your product should not have more than 140 mg of sodium per serving.
The idea of adding rice to lemon chicken soup avgolemono or any other soup for that matter is to make it thicker and heartier.
Egg and lemon juice might be a weird combo, but it's the secret ingredient that thickens and enriches the soup.
