Avgolemono Greek Lemon Chicken Soup is the perfect easy chicken dinner recipe! This soup is also great for when you’re feeling under the weather.
We have been having some crazy spring weather! One day it’s 75, and the next day, it’s snowing. With the weather so all over the place, I made this Avgolemono Greek Lemon Chicken Soup because it’s warm and comforting but bright and spring-y all at the same time.
This avgolemono soup is rich and creamy with a nice little bit of lemon juice to keep it from getting overly heavy. I like to make this soup when we aren’t feeling good because it’s a great pick-me-up soup.
It’s also really easy to make. Just make sure that you whisk, whisk, whisk so that you don’t end up with scrambled egg soup!
