Chicken and Coriander Soup

    40 minutes

    The ingredients and the process are simple but I think this makes a far better soup than out of a tin.

    Even my chicken-soup-hating-husband likes this soup! With a few minor changes, it is a good basic chicken soup recipe. DO NOT add the vegetables when cooking the chicken or they will be too mushy when the soup is done and covered in the scummy looking "foam" formed by the simmering chicken. Skim off "foam" as the chicken simmers or your soup will be cloudy when done. Remove chicken and cut into bite size pieces. Return to pot and add the garlic and vegetables - carrots, onions and celery (instead of celery salt). We do not like coriander or dill, so I substitute parsley.  -  08 Oct 2008


    My daughter got sick in school yesterday and I wasn't home...GUILT, GUILT, GUILT. I didn't have my phone with me either; more GUILT. Daddy to the rescue, thank goodness. Anyway, she was finally feeling a little hungry today, so I whipped this soup up for her. It's really pretty good for a quickie and she's definitely enjoying it. Thanks Deb!  -  08 Oct 2008


    Although my mum's version still wins, this was quick and easy. A thick soup that was pretty tasty. Sprinkled dried parsley over all. Thanks Deb.  -  08 Oct 2008
