    Default i'm making chicken soup

    who wants some?

    I'm a chicken soup virgin and am feeling suitable nervous about this particular rite of passage.

    All hints and tips welcome.

    Moroccan chicken soup:

    Chicken bits, skinned, up to you how many.
    Vermiccili
    Parsley about a heaped palm full of it choped fresh or dried
    Coriander same as the parsley
    Tumeric about a tespoon and half
    Black pepper to your taste, same with the salt
    Half a teaspoon of ground ginger
    One large onion grated
    2 tablespoons of oil of your choice

    Fry grated onion in the oil until softened, add chicken fry for a few minutes, add herbs and spices and half a cup of water and leave to simmer for another five minutes, stirring occassionally. Add a few cups of water so that it covers the chicken to about an inch above, leave to simmer.

    Keep adding water as you check on it to be sure the water stays at that level for about 30 minutes, then crunch up some vermicilli into it, leave for about 5 minutes and serve with crunchy bread and butter.

    LOL well vermicilli is just really thin noodles, you can get a chinese noodle that is just as thin, basically look for the thinnest noodles you can find.

    And the rest is all available in a supermarket or the local cash and carry corner shop. (or it should be)

    It really is nice, I like mine quite peppery especially when I'm ill. It's cheap comfort food.

    Family Favorite

    Combine in saucepan:
    Cooked chicken, diced (soy kind for us, since we're vegetarians)
    Diced Potatoes
    1 can whole kernel corn (with its juice)
    chicken bouillon, to taste
    sprinkle or two of dill weed
    (Could add diced carrots and drained can of Great Northern beans, but I don't usually)

    Boil gently till potatoes (and carrots, if added) are tender. Lower heat a bit and melt a couple slices of real American cheese into it. Remove from heat, once cheese is melted and stirred in, and serve.

    EDIT: I forgot! Add chopped onions and minced garlic, too. You can use dried onion and garlic powder, too. The soup isn't quite the same taste (nor is it as healthy) without it.

    If you make it from scratch, including the stock, it always turns out good, but it takes a lot of time to cook. When you start taking short cuts, that's when it starts increasing the chances of not turning out well.
