Soups from Picky Palate

4 Jan

Jenny from Picky Palate has five brothy chicken soup recipes up right now. They all sound delicious and easy.  I often use a rotisserie chicken for soups to make them quick.  These are on sale on Sundays at our local Harris Teeter grocery.  Alternately, if I plan ahead, we cook an extra chicken breast or two when making chicken during the week.  Heating the oven once to make several meals…how energy-efficient of me!

Since there are just two of us at my house, I like to make a big batch of soup. Half of it gets frozen and the other half gets eaten, usually for dinner one night and lunch the next day. From my experience, I recommend freezing soup separate from the rice or pasta. The starchy ingredients tend to soak up all the liquid leaving a mushy brothless mess. Also, I double bag my soup and lay it flat to freeze. It makes it easy to stack in the freezer that way.
