Chicken Avgolemono

Juice and zest of 1 lemon

Advanced prep at home:

In a large pot, heat the olive oil gently.

Remove the meat and leave to one side. Continue cooking the bones, add the spring onion, lemon zest and cook for 5 minutes.

Add the rice, mix well, then add the wine.

Cook for 2 minutes and add the chicken stock.

Cover and simmer until the rice is cooked through, taste and season if necessary.

Remove 2 cups of the broth and put to one side.

Shred the chicken and add to the pot, turn off the heat.

Add the chopped herbs.

Whisk the 2 eggs and lemon juice together.

Slowly add a ladle of reserved hot broth to the egg mix, whisking.

Add the now warmed mix to the pot, mix well to incorporate fully, then stir for 2-3 minutes.

Allow to cool, then refrigerate overnight.

Chill 2 or 3 x 500 ml insulated food canisters. You’re using these so that the food stays at cold temperatures for the hike to your camp, thereby keeping your food fresh and minimizing health risks.

In camp:

Heat the soup thoroughly until fully heated through, including the rice.

Serve in bowls, topped with fresh herbs.
