The cure all for when Greeks are sick (or just plain hungry, to be honest)? Chicken avgolemono (Greek for “egg and lemon”) soup. This dish is so easy to prepare and requires very few ingredients making it a Mediterranean diet staple. Here’s how you whip it up…
1 whole organic chicken (skin removed)
1/2 cup rice
Salt & pepper to taste
In a large pot, add whole chicken and cover with water. Boil for 1 hour. Once chicken is cooked, add rice. Keep heat on low for half an hour. Now it’s time to make the piece de resistance — the avgolemono.
