Chicken Soup

My kitty enjoying the fire

One of the best things about cold, fall weather is having a hot bowl of soup by the fire. I don't usually follow a recipe when I'm make soup. I use whatever I have in the fridge. This time I made chicken soup with veggies. Normally once I've browned the onions I deglaze the pan with some white wine but I didn't have any. I decided to try the marsala wine I had leftover from a dish I made a few night was delicious. I love when something works out as you hope it will in a recipe.
Here are the ingredients I used:
Cooked shredded chicken
Chopped Onions browned in olive oil, I add a little minced garlic just before the onions are done
Chopped celery
Peel and diced sweet potatoes and russet potatoes
Bay Leaf
Salt & Pepper to taste
Marsala Wine to deglaze the pan
Chicken Broth
Celery Seed (I love this spice and always put it in my chicken soup)
A little cayenne pepper for heat
Bring to a boil and then simmer until the potatoes are tender. Delicious.


  1. There is nothing more comforting than a big bowl of chicken soup.

  2. chicken soup is so healing. I have no idea why but it really is.
