Lemon chicken greek soup not only comes under among the delicious food recipes, but this recipe is also very healthy. Now, this post is my first post on the “lemonhoneyrecipes.com” site, before I share my recipe idea I need to clarify one most important thing that, we had talked to many chefs, & tried more than 5 different flavour recipes then we produce our new recipe formula that is best for you.
In every country, chicken soups are prepared in a different way, but the most attractive part of the recipe is; the color of the soup. Almost every greek restaurant listed this recipe in their menus. The perfect time to consume this soup for dinner or you can enjoy it at any time. Because its high calories & fats slow down our digestion process.
Now before enjoying this recipe, you must care about the body cholesterol level, that’s why I will share with you 2 different ways to prepare the dishes. Obviously everyone wants to enjoy the food, but we have to take care of our health also. People who might have cholesterol problems might go for recipe no 2, otherwise, the second recipe is much healthier than the 1st one but the 1st one is more delicious.
