Last night I fixed a Greek Chicken and Rice Soup to help heal us all! Here is the recipe. I got this recipe out of a church cookbook:
1/3 cup uncooked white rice
1 qt. chicken broth
2 large eggs
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cups finely diced chicken
I made my own chicken broth for this recipe. I placed a package of chicken legs (frozen) into a pot of water and added onions, salt, and salt and pepper. I fill the pot up with water and let the chicken boil away for about 1 hour. The chicken was falling off the bone after it boiled that long, so it was easy to dice up/shred for the soup. I put the chicken in a container, separate from the broth. I then strained the broth and put it back on the stove. I placed the rice in the broth and cooked for about 15-20 minutes or until it was finished. I then mixed the 2 large eggs together in a bowl and slowly added the lemon juice. I then slowly whisked together 1 cup of the chicken broth to the egg mixture (that's called tempering). I then added the egg mixture into the pot of soup and cooked for about 2 minutes with the lid on it (make sure it doesn't boil!). I then added the chicken and cooked until everything was hot.
My husband and I found that this soup was a little bland, so we added this:
This soup is a good alternative to your regular canned chicken noodle soup! I hope you give it a try! You can always search the web for other recipes for Avgholemono!
