    My wife who is Albanian made a lemon rice soup using Turkey from our Thanksgiving dinner the next day and OH MY GOD unbelievable

    Me when I discovered this channel: GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALL

  • Lesley Stevens on December 20, 2020

    I know this is very adaptable and the use of arborio rice here looks fantastic. Isnt it traditionally made with orzo? That's how I have always had it.

    Ok, now I need to make a batch of this. My mother used to make it all the time, being from a Greek family.

  • Tarleton Watson on February 25, 2021

    This a great recipe, thanks for posting. I still use a family recipe that's written with "kitchen" measurements such as "handfulls", "coffee can full", "maybe more???", and so on. And I also use orzo instead of rice which can be added early to the broth to cook and also thicken. I used to find egg based orzo AKA egg manestra, but too hard to find now.

    This man is a treasure! Love his recipes!

  • Mikhail Chelpon on March 3, 2021

    im greek, and the onions and cayenne pepper confuse me greatly

  • Andrew Peacock on March 21, 2021

    You made this look so easy. Greek cooking is often tricky, it really separates the men from the boys.

  • H Bubby on April 2, 2021

    Cheated when I made this tonight to save time. In lieu of boiling a whole chicken, I just used prepared chicken stock, water, and extra chicken bullion to enhance the flavor. Added in a lemon pepper rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Absolutely amazing!

    This will be perfect for a cold and windy spring day🥣

    my dad and i have had this from greek restaurants many times over the years but i made this and it was the best either of us have ever had. thanks chef john.

  • Jim on April 20, 2021

    Just like my Yaya used to make!!

    I never understand why Chef John insists on cooking a whole chicken instead of pieces with bones and skins. I think the meat would cook much sooner.
    I tried making this soup once, though I don't remember whether it was exactly this recipe or one by someone else. Anyway, the amount of lemon juice was way too much. I intended making just a small quantity as an experiment but then ended up doubling the amount of other ingredients just to normalize the acid. And I didn't put the entire recommended amount of lemon juice either because I just felt it would be too sour!
    And in the end, I didn't like the soup that much considering all the trouble I went to in order to put it together. Don't get me wrong, I am fascinated by Greek history and culture but I just didn't like the soup. Maybe I didn't cook it right. The only saving grace was the rice. I had no arborio rice and so used one of the fragrant short-grained Indian varieties that release plenty starch if cooked to mushiness. I just told myself I was eating a particularly watery version of congee with a squeeze of lemon. 🙂

    "We can shred it or chop it or cube it or dice it
    and put it into the soup in the end."

    The late George Carlin used to use rythmic phrases like that. Thanks for reminding me Chef.

    Btw. I'm cooking the soup for the 3rd time. The recipe is real good, you can trust me, I'm Greek.
    Then again, don't trust me, I'm Greek.

  • Melissa Orona on June 9, 2021

    Made lemon rice soup for the first time today using your recipe. PHENOMENAL! Thank you, good sir!

  • Jo on July 8, 2021

    this is congee isnt it

  • Sokra Abdulwahab on July 30, 2021


  • Diendi Subiakto on August 6, 2021

    I know I can count on Greek recipes if I'm craving chicken and lemon

  • paulie2tanks on August 12, 2021

    1:54 – "At this point we'll go ahead and choke our chicken."

  • Renee S on August 15, 2021

    Made this yesterday my husband ate 3 bowls for supper and then wanted some more for a bedtime snack! It’s fantastic! Thanks for another great recipe!

  • Alex Vagias on August 28, 2021

    Instead of rice, I use orzo. It's a rice shaped pasta. I, and my deceased mother, thought orzo works and tastes much better. Try it. You won't be sorry.

  • Michael McDermott on September 2, 2021

    This is one of my top 3 favorites. This video makes it seem labor intensive but let me tell you it's every second or TLC you give this soup.

  • Suzanne Hedderly on September 14, 2021

    I love avgolemono soup but prefer it with orzo. Mmm!

  • Caitlin on September 30, 2021

    I was searching different versions of this recipe, and I'm going to make this one because it looks delish but more importantly, you got me to crack up a few times.

  • Tia Fanioudakis on October 4, 2021

    👍 avgooooooooooooolemono 😆
    Great tip on not overcooking the chicken, if one prefers chunky over shredded chicken in their soup!

  • Thirsty Fish on October 6, 2021

    I worked for a Greek family looking after their kid in the UK, and the mum would get me to make this every week, literally to the letter of your recipe! So great to have it again! Especially now it's cold season.

  • Kady Buggie on October 31, 2021

    I made this today and only added 1/4 cup of lemon juice and then put lemon wedges on the table with minced cilantro, diced jalapeños and crispy fried onions. Everyone here has a cold and boy did it hit the spot!!!

  • Linda Norris on November 27, 2021

    love this recipe!

  • vanessa shaw on December 17, 2021

    Another winter creation.

  • Lia Valis on January 12, 2022

    This soup is pure medicine for the cold winter months! My yiayia did it the exact same way. Thanks for posting !😊
