Chicken lemon rice is an iconic comfort soup found at most coney islands or Greek restaurants. It's the perfect soup for the days when you have a cold and/or need something warm and comforting.
Fun fact, did you know the Greek name for this soup is Avgolemono meaning egg-lemon sauce?
In a large soup pot, heat oil and toss in chopped onions. Cook about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent.
Add in broth, rice, and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes or until rice is cooked and tender.
While rice is cooking, in a small bowl, beat the egg. Mix in lemon and lemon zest.
Ladle some soup into the small bowl and stir well.
Pour mixture into the pot and stir well. You will notice the soup will thicken. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Add shredded chicken.
Add in parsley and stir in more salt, pepper, or lemon if desired.
Serve while hot. Enjoy!
