Avgolemono is a traditional Greek sauce made with eggs and lemons. It can also easily be prepared as a comforting chicken and rice soup.
½ cup rice
1 chicken, cut up
3 quarts of water
Salt and pepper
1 T butter
Juice of 2 lemons
3 T water
Clean and wash chicken and place in a large saucepan with water. Bring to a boil over a high flame. Reduce heat to medium and cook 1 hour or until tender. Remove chicken from broth. Add salt and pepper to taste. (Can use chicken for other use or can cut up and put in soup or place cooked chicken in the oven to brown and serve)
Add rice to broth. Add butter. Cook for 2 minutes. Prepare Avgolemono sauce. Pour over broth and mix well. Serve hot.
