Kitchen Lab # 05 : from Yummy Magazine May 2010 page 42


Farmhouse Chicken Soup

here's another dish from a glossy magazine. a classic chicken soup but a new one for me. while im reading the recipe, i immediately said to myself "why didn't i think of that!". a great, hearty and creamy good old sopas using potatoes instead of pasta. budget saver and time saver indeed.

for the exact recipe, pls buy the Yummy Magazine May 2010 issue. ill just share to you my version of it since not all ingredients are staple in our kitchen.

first, tenderize chicken pieces (i used chicken breast) by boiling it in water, peppercorns, half of a carrot, celery, salt and onions. skim off scums and oil while boiling. when done, strain and save the stock. shred chicken meat discarding its bones. set both aside.

then, saute garlic, onions and chopped bacon. add celery, cubed potatoes and carrots (new set of carrots; not the one used in broth). sprinkle 1 1/2 Tbsp of flour.

pour stock and bring to boil. lower the heat and simmer until veggies are done. add all purpose cream (heavy cream was used in the magazine) and the shredded chicken. mix well, season w/ salt and pepper to taste.

serve while hot w/ bread, rice or crackers.

for this photo i garnished it w/ chopped leeks and a fried wanton wrapper.

Have FUN FUN FUN in the kitchen, for a happy cook makes hearty meals :D

I like sopas, especially during cold, rainy day. Sometimes I prep my chicken sopas with pasta and potatoes together.
