      First of all,Avgolemono is not chicken soup. The literal translation is Egg-Lemon. This recipe did not include the egg/lemon wgich is as follows.To 6 cups of chicken stock, add 1/3 cup of orzo or rice. Separate 3 eggs. Beat whites with 1/4 tsp of salt, until stiff. Add yolks one at a time with mixer on low speed, until blended.Slowly add 1/4 cup fresh (not bottled)lemon juice. Continuiing to beat, slowly add 1 cup of the stock. Pour the egg/lemon mixture to the rmaining stock and heat through, over low heat stirring until thickened enough to coat a spoon. DELICIOUS! (and authentic)
