      i did not try this, but just a suggestion that i like. The greek deli by my house makes the best avgolemono soup i've had. They put chunks of chicken in it along with chopped celery and use orzo rather than rice. The orzo is delicious in this.

      Great recipe, it was a bit thicker than I wanted so I may use a little less milk next time. I added some white pepper and chopped celery, which was a hit!
