On Avgolemono Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

This recipe is perfect for Winter- it’s rich and creamy and incorporates in season citrus.  There’s also no dairy products which is notable and it is so bright in flavor thanks to the lemons- so uplifting!

  • 2 Quarts Chicken Broth
  • 1 Cup Orzo
  • 3 Stalks Celery, chopped
  • 1 Large Onion, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 lb Chicken Breast, cut in large bite-sized pieces
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • *3-5 Lemons (⅓ cup juice)


Sauté onion & celery in vegetable oil until tender, approximately 10 minutes.  

Add soup stock and bring to a boil.  

Turn heat down to medium and add orzo.  

Cook for about 6 minutes and add chicken.  

Beat eggs until light and fluffy in a 1-2 quart bowl.  

When chicken and orzo are almost done, begin removing some broth and slowly adding to the eggs. 

Beat the broth/egg mixture and continue to add more broth to slowly bring the temperature of the eggs up so that when you pour them into the soup, it doesn’t curdle.  

Add the lemon juice to the egg/broth mixture and slowly pour back into the pot, stirring constantly, then add salt & pepper to taste.

*Lemons vary quite a bit in juiciness. Although Meyer lemons are very juicy, I find that regular lemons provide the right level of acidity for this soup.

Marcella's art is top notch! I am constantly gifting her art prints, cards and stickers - they feel so personal. I also have loved taking her workshops and learning basics in watercolor!

I love how Marcella's watercolors have such a distinct style and feel to them. They're so colorful, I feel like I can spot from far away because they're so distinct.

Patrick Abrams

As a collector of Marcella's watercolors, I have a six of her frames in my living room and swap the watercolors out seasonally with different prints- it's so fun to change them up, and I love how big her collection is. It's a joy to curate my wall with these watercolors!
