Fun to say, delicious to eat! This fabulous Greek soup can turn chicken and rice leftovers into a luscious lemony soup that everyone in the family will love. The ingredient list is small, the magic is big! (Also, it is dairy and gluten-free.)
Many people have been asking for a Livestream class to make an easy and delicious dinner. I’ve one-upped you! Here, you can make Roast chicken with rice one night and Avoglemono Soup later in the week. It’s a 2-fer! For the Livestream class, let’s not worry about “how to turn leftovers into a soup.” Instead, we’ll use all fresh ingredients (no leftovers) to learn this amazing dish. Once you’ve mastered the soup, you’ll quickly see all the possibilities, from making Avgolemono from scratch, to portioning a chicken for multiple uses, to repurposing leftovers.
Just a Few Ingredients Make the Magic
Here’s what to have on hand to get ready for class. This will make 1 lovely pot of soup, perfect for 4 people . . . or plenty for freezable leftovers if your household is less than 4!
1 chicken breast (Bone-in, boneless, skin on, skinless: it all works!) If you have a different part of the chicken, like chicken thigh, that’s OK, too. We’re going for about ¾ pound of chicken.
2 quarts (8 cups) chicken stock, at a simmer. Before class, I’ll heat a quart of water to boiling, turn it to a simmer and add 2 tablespoons Better than Bouillon Chicken Base to make a stock. (That’s my favorite chicken stock! ) At home, you may have your favorite bouillon, or you may like to use pre-purchased chicken stock: TJ’s sells 32-ounce cartons — you’ll need 2 cartons. Whichever method you use, please make sure the chicken stock is nice and hot when the class begins.
1 cup white rice. Please measure out the rice and place it in a small pot or rice cooker.
Mint — one pack or 1 bunch of mint is perfect!
Blender (If you don’t have a blender you can also use a bowl and a whisk instead.)
Ladle & spoon
