I can't take credit for the title because you know who came up with it, but I will take credit for the pot of soup. Is there anything better when the rain and wind are blowing sideways than a big bowl of the stuff?
This one's a combination of chicken and turkey along with the usual onions and carrots. I had every intention of adding parsnip to the mix but decided to follow the "kiss" rule instead. Sorry, it doesn't look pretty but it sure did taste good.
Should you be searching for a "fowl" soup that's a little different from the usual veggie/rice version, you could always try one of the following. They're all really something to crow about.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 large onions, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
2 turkey thighs, skinned, boned & cut into 1 inch pieces
1 chicken breast, skinned, boned and cut into 1 inch pieces
1-1/2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
1 bay leaf
8 cups low sodium chicken stock
Salt and course ground black pepper
4 large carrots, peeled and diced
1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup orzo cooked per package directions
Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add onions and celery and cook until vegetables soften. Add chicken and turkey pieces (about 5 cups in total) and sauté until no longer pink. Add poultry seasoning and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Taste for seasoning, adding salt and pepper as needed. Add carrots and simmer for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for another 5 minutes. Makes 8 servings.
