Lunch Box 123: Homemade chicken soup


Back to the


Mmm, rice-y. Springtime in Atlanta is often cold and rainy and generally cruddy, perfect weather for chicken soup. So I made just that. The stock was made from the Cornish game hen that starred in recent lunches, and from there I used the "stone soup" method. Gotta have chicken and I've used up all the game hen; cut up a chicken breast. Browse through the fridge and pull out whatever looks good - carrots, celery, scallions, mushrooms, and lotus root - and chop it up and throw it in. Hmm, still pretty watery - add some rice. Season with salt and simmer for a half hour. This was just perfect for a typical Atlanta cold, rainy day.
