November Grocery Challenge
Fri, 10-30-2009 - 9:16pm

Your challenge this month, should you choose to accept it, is to incorporate a *soup night* into your menu plans each week and to share the recipes! Soups are a great way to stretch the grocery budget! And such a comfort food, imho, during the fall and winter!

Anyone with me on this one?

lol, ok, without knowing about this challenge, we had a soup last and it was homemade cream chicken soup. It was so delicious, and unbelievable I didnt have a recipe for it (my computer wasnt working for a week and I picked it up in the late afternoon when the soup was almost ready) but made it the way I thought it could work out.

(serves 2 adults and 2 kids):
After lunch I put 2 chicken quarters to boil. I added one cube (chicken) and some salt (both up to your own taste). I turned down the heat and let it simmer. After about 15 minutes, I added half of a onion (minced) and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Let it simmer on low heat over the afternoon. around 5pm, I turned the heat up until half of the water was gone, fished out the chicken. I added sour cream to my broth until it was creamy. For my taste, it needed another half of a chicken cube, but I guess this depends on your taste as well as the size of your cubes. I deboned the chicken , cut it up. I took a pan and added some oil, fried the chicken a little, put it back to the cream soup. let it simmer on very low heat for another 45 minutes, stir every now and then. If available, sprinkle some fresh parsley before serving.

My family are not big soup eaters so this will be a real challenge for me.
