Bit too complicated for me I'm afraid. :) But it looks lovely.
I have never boiled chicken before..who would have thought that you could! So tempted to cook this soup. I will order the ingredients online one evening and give it a go. Thank you.
Dear jrj1954, there are quite a few ingredients in the soup but it does take only 10 minutes to prepare, then you can leave it to poach until its ready to enjoy. I love the spices but you could leave them out if it would make it less complicated to prepare.
Hi Fairydust14 - poaching is such a great way to get juicy, tender chicken. Hope you've had a chance to give it a go. Jane
I always freeze the carcasses when we have a roast chicken. When I've got 3, I make chicken stock. I then make a soup very similar to this by poaching a couple of chicken breasts in the stock. Delicious.
