White wine chicken and vegetable soupPosted: November 4, 2009
What a great fall recipe. This recipe from all recipes made the house smell amazing and I loved all the different veggies added in. The wine gave it such a great deep flavor. Great twist on the old chicken and veggie soup recipes out there.
1/2 (2 to 3 pound) whole chicken
2 parsnips, peeled and chopped
1 medium head garlic, peeled-I minced this to add deep garlic flavor to every bite!
2 large onions, chopped
5 carrots, chopped
2 zucchini, chopped
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 sweet potato, peeled and cubed-I omitted this
1 packet chicken vegetable soup mix-I omitted this
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
8 cups water
1/2 (750 milliliter) bottle white wine
salt and pepper to taste
In a large soup pot or Dutch oven, combine chicken, parsnips, garlic, onions, carrots, zucchini, parsley, celery, potatoes, sweet potato, soup mix, oregano, paprika, water, wine, salt and pepper. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil 30 minutes, partially covered, then reduce heat to low and simmer another 90 minutes.
