Village Style: Greek Lemon Chicken Soup (VIDEO)


Hello!  Today, I’m bringing you one of my favorite soups from the villages of Greece.

It’s a Greek cream of chicken soup with lemon and egg. It’s actually called Avgolemeno and what that means is, avgo which means “egg,” lemeno or “lemon,” and then, a consomme.  So, it’s this beautiful broth that is technically the version of chicken soup, but it’s really a Greek-style chicken soup; every Greek I know has some sort of variation with the lemon.

My grandmother would add tons of lemon when we would get sick because she believed the lemon and the broth was essential to keeping your digestive tract nice and healthy. She believed if you got sick, it was attributed to your digestive tract, interesting.
