Greek Lemon Chicken Soup. This is a wonderful soup if you love lemon flavor. It's a creamy, rich, acidic soup that our family loves.
Use fresh lemon only for the lemon juice, this is not a place for bottled lemon. This recipe calls for yolks only use the egg whites to make a meringue for another dish. I usually double or triple this recipe because friends and family always want some.

      Hi Denise:
      I love Greek food. Avegolemono soup suits my taste. Since I have a Meyer lemon tree that produces lemons all year long this will make good use of some lemons. I make preserved lemons with the lemons as well but this will make a nice starter to a Greek meal. I have added it to my Try soon folder. Thanks for sharing!
