|Homemade chunky chicken soup|
After we lost our sweet Sydney Cat a couple of weeks ago, 2nd Man made a huge pot of homemade chicken soup so we didn't have to think about cooking for a few days. It worked, because we ate on it all weekend.
He just makes it up as he goes along so there isn't much of an actual recipe, but here's what I know. First, he uses a pressure cooker, a package of wings and some seasonings to make some amazing chicken broth. Then he roasts some breasts in the oven. Next, he just dices up and then cooks the veggies, in this case carrots, red, white and blue (purple) potatoes, onions, celery, garlic and white beets, in the broth with added water. We like it chunky as it seems more rustic. After that, he just adds some herbs and seasonings and finally the roasted breast meat, torn into chunks with some fresh parsley sprinkled into each bowl when it's dished out for serving.
It's chunky and flavorful and oh so satisfying.
I guess it's true, it really is chicken soup for the soul huh?
