Avgolemono is a classic sauce of chicken broth, egg yolks and lemon juice; the addition of a bit more chicken broth, rice and shredded chicken turns it into a satisfying soup.

  1. 4 cups homemade chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  2. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  3. 2 cups cooked white rice, warmed
  4. 2 large egg yolks
  5. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  6. 1 rotisserie chicken, meat pulled from the bones and coarsely shredded (1 pound)
  7. 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  1. In a large saucepan, season the stock with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Transfer 1 cup of the hot stock to a blender. Add 1/2 cup of the rice, the egg yolks and the lemon juice and puree until smooth. Stir the puree into the simmering stock along with the chicken and the remaining 1 1/2 cups of rice and simmer until thickened slightly, 10 minutes. Stir in the dill and serve.
