How to make Quick Avgolemono Soup (Greek Lemon Soup)

  How to make Quick Avgolemono Soup 

This classic soup is great to make. And it's a pleasure to drink this in a slightly warmer season. This soup can be made very well by using lemon in Greek Salina Chicken Soup.  

The combination of egg and lemon in this soup is very good. The combination of these is very good in this classic recipe. So this is Chicken Avgolemo Soup. 

Avgo-wha? Ah-vo-LEMEN-o, or at least that's how I remember the Greeks at the local diner in New Jersey saying it. The "g" isn't at all time pronounced.  

An Easy Avgolemono Recipe 

Like gumbo, goulash, or chili, there are great versions of  the this soup. Some, like this one, have bits of chicken in the  them. Some start with a whole chicken and to the take hours. A few have nothing more than chicken broth and to  the egg-lemon sauce. Most, still , have a starch such as rice or orzo pasta.      

The key to avgolemono is the egg-lemon sauce.

It is what makes this version of chicken soup special. What starts as a pretty ordinary mix of chicken, onions, pasta, and broth becomes silky, tangy, and unforgettable.
