Avgelomono Soup with Baklouti Green Chili Olive Oil

Avgelomono is a comforting Greek chicken, lemon, egg, and rice soup. It's an absolute favorite soups to enjoy on a chilly winter day. 



8 cups     Chicken stock or broth
1 cup       Short grain starchy rice
2 large     shallots
1              bay leaf
2 large     eggs
1 pound    chicken breast,  cut in 1" cubes
1/3 cup     lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1/3 cup + 2 TBSP  INFUSED Baklouti Green Chili Fused Olive Oil
               Fresh cracked pepper
To taste   Sea salt 



In a large stock pot, heat 2 tablespoons Baklouti Green Chili Fused Olive Oil over medium heat.   Add the diced shallots and saute until soft, approximately 2 minutes.

Add the chicken stock, chicken breast, bay leaf, and rice to the pot and bring to a simmer for approximately 30 minutes, or until the rice is very tender, and the soup is slightly thickened.

In a heat proof bowl whisk together the eggs and lemon juice.  Add one cup of hot stock to the egg and lemon mixture whisking constantly.  Add the egg and lemon mixture back in to the stock pot while stirring constantly.

The soup will instantly thicken and become somewhat creamy.  Simmer for an additional minute over medium heat stirring constantly.   Remove the bay leaf, taste and adjust the seasoning with additional pepper, and salt if desired.

Serve each bowl with a healthy drizzle of Baklouti Agrumato Olive Oil

Serves 6-8
