Avgolemono, a delicious homemade Greek lemon chicken soup with Arborio rice and vegetables, is the perfect comfort food.


– olive oil – onion – carrots – celery – chicken broth

Add olive oil to a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onions, carrots, and celery. Stir and cook for about one minute. Stir in garlic.


Stir in chicken broth and oregano. Cover and bring to a boil. Add the rice and reduce the heat to simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the rice is soft.


Stir in shredded chicken. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the lemon juice and egg.


Slowly spoon some (about 1/2 to 1 cup) of the hot soup into the bowl with the eggs while whisking to slowly raise the temperature of the eggs without curdling.


Pour the egg and lemon mixture into the soup in the pot and stir to combine. Remove soup from heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
