After a nice long drive along Lake Michigan this afternoon, we got home around 6:00PM. Thank you Daylight Savings Time!!! I had bought a couple of chickens at Pick ‘n Save yesterday. Earlier, I indicated that I was entering recipes into my Living Cookbook application. I finished that this afternoon and pulled up the chicken soup recipe I had planned on making. Part of the reason for our later afternoon drive was this fast and tasty dish. The recipe is Chicken-Vegetable soup. The recipe is below. Click on the recipe to be taken to the Cooking Light source version.
I was a bit nervous when the recipe suggested that I boil the chicken. I’ve been warned for years from every book and cooking show that boiling chicken will create a cloudy broth. I lucked out and have a beautiful clear broth that has a really great, fresh taste. I think the parsnip adds not only a sweet tone, but the great fresh taste in this soup. Be sure to taste for proper salt flavor. I had to add some additional salt for proper seasoning.
