This Greek Avgolemono soup is always a winner! Shredded chicken, rice, and a few simple vegetables are stirred into a silky smooth lemon-and-egg broth for a cozy balanced meal. The ingredients are fairly simple, although, I will say I created a small shortcut. Instead of cooking a whole chicken from scratch to create the shredded chicken and broth, I’m using a rotisserie chicken and boxed chicken broth. I’m also using pre-cooked white rice. Hello meal prep! Is this an authentic avgolemono soup? Technically, no, but it follows the same concept, with very similar results and flavor. You know me – I’m all for simplifying things as much as I can for a seamless (and easy!) cooking experience. Plus my version gets this healthy Mediterranean soup recipe on the table fast for an easy weeknight dinner meal! 🖨 Printable Avgolemono Soup Recipe: Sign up for weekly emails (never miss a recipe!): Join the private Facebook group of fellow Downshifters around the world: ► PREORDER MY COOKBOOK!!!

We're almost in SOUP season, so I thought I'd get a jumpstart on it with this tasty Greek soup! What soup recipes would you like to see me whip up next?? xo – Lisa
This soup looks absolutely divine! We’re STILL in soup weather in Melbourne and I can’t wait to make this!
This is chicken soup in Greece 🇬🇷
Υπέροχη συνταγή θα την δοκιμάσω !❤️🙏
Made this tonight for dinner, added baby spinach and arugula, was sooo good. I also served it with some dill.
Do you know how this would freeze?
This soup look so good I'm so excited to try it , your Recipes never Disappoint
This could be a very versatile soup!
I could probably add broccoli and other veggies too – I’d probably go overboard and add everything 😅❤🍲
I was just thinking about a soup idea and this looks so good. I've tried this with someone elses receipe and ended up with egg drop soup. Lol 😅 Your way seems a little easier for me.
Wondering how this would be with cauliflower rice? 🤔
OMG! I can't wait to try this! I'm obsessed with Greek Food! 😋
You can use orzo instead of rice
This looks delicious! Could it be made without the egg or with an Egg Replacer like the one from Bob’s Red Mill?
One of my favorite soups that never gets enough love, thank you for sharing the recipe!
Thank you for another comforting & healthy (and user-friendly!!) recipe, Lisa☺️ More soup recipes are always welcomed.
Please keep the soups recipes coming. I LOVE soup and cannot wait for cooler temperatures.
Oh my this looks so so good! Bring on cooler weather!
My favorite soup 🙂
Ok this looks AMAZING but I recently learned I’m allergic to eggs. Would there be a substitute for the eggs in this recipe?
Oh my goodness , thank you Lisa ❤️
Please explain different curry spice and flavor profiles.
Is your cook book available in London, UK?
I’m a big fan of chicken dishes.. my fav is Chicken Marsala.. not Masala. Would be curious to see your take!
I just made this and it was amazing! I just happened to have leftover rice and a rotisserie chicken I got yesterday! I made this soup many times before but your version was the most flavourful and easy of all, I used carrots on mine and skipped th3 celery since I didn't have any!
With life and busy schedules, I love to see easy quick meal ideas 😋 thanks 🇰🇪
Spicy sweet potato soup please 😊
I'm allergic to egg, can I just leave it out or is there something I could use instead?
Looks yummy. I can’t wait to try it!
In Greece we boil the chicken and we use this tasty water to finish the soup.Rice is boiled in chicken's water for tasty.
There is no need.
It is ideal for sickness.It's a real medicine.
Love the soup. I spend $7 for a bowl at nick the Greek and it doesn’t even have rice 🍚 only bits or chicken. As soon as I saw it I went to the grocery store to get the ingredients to make it for lunch. Most of all I like your recipes because the ingredients are simple and easy to find.
Can you substitute the rice with another grain, like quinoa?
Thank you! I LOVE soup! You are amazing! 🤩
I saw this post and came on here-soups are wonderfully fresh and delish-I will wait til this heat and horrible humidity goes away but this will definitely be on our rotation-thank you Lisa as always great presentation and editing is always on point
I love your recipes! Great tip about blending cooked rice to thicken soups. You have the best gluten-free ideas. Thank you so much.
I love soups and this looks divine. Will definitely give it a try.😊
I always appreciate all the videos you post. I have tried some of your recipes and love them. My work schedule is being an early riser. I do make different smoothies for one thing. I'd love to see some recipes that can be made ahead of time for hectic work schedules. Be blessed 🙏
Can quinoa be substituted for rice?
