You can’t eat just one bowl.It’s the time of year when all we’re craving is a hot, flavorful bowl of soup. This recipe though, isn’t the kind of heavy, nap-inducing recipe that the winter months are known for. This Avgolemono Chicken Soup stays true to Chef Pano’s signature style of using bright, fresh ingredients to create a dish that’s both healthy and delicious. Avgolemono is the mother sauce in Greece that’s typically made by combining braising liquid from whatever you’re cooking with eggs, lemon juice, and a few other ingredients. The result is a creamy, flavorful sauce that isn’t too thick and perfectly compliments the dish you’re cooking. Check out Chef Pano’s demo from Ponce City Market’s Farmer’s Market and learn to make this delicious dish.
