There are certain things in the kitchen that intimidate me, for whatever reason. One of them? Working with a whole chicken. I’m not sure why, but something about a gigantic raw chicken just freaks me out.
So, up until now, I had successfully avoided working with a whole chicken. But then, I saw this recipe on The Pioneer Woman. And it looked delicious. And I’m on a total soup kick lately. So I decided to be bold and work with the whole chicken. The result? Culinary triumph. Okay, that might be a slight exaggeration. But it was a damn good meal.
This recipe isn’t difficult. In fact, it’s pretty straightforward; it just takes awhile to cook. And the end result is worth the wait – my entire kitchen smelled wonderful, and the soup was hearty and delicious. I ate it for like a week, and I’m thinking of making another batch sometime soon. It’s getting chilly outside and – trust me – you need this soup in your life.
