Oh my gosh, this recipe is such a winter favorite. Alright, you got me, it’s a year-round favorite. I make this in the dead of summer.
This recipe comes together nicely as the proportions are so easy to estimate. I use solo cups, 16-ounce plastic tumblers, to separate my ingredients to make my mise en place. Mise en place is a culinary term to describe “everything in its place.” This gets everything chopped up and all ingredients lined up and ready to cook before the application of heat (cooking) starts.
Wow, zzzzzzzz, I just bored myself.
But the point is that you can pop everything into 16-ounce solo cups to separate and measure your ingredients so that they’re all set to throw in the pot. Also, I find it’s easier to remember all the quantities too. ⅔ onion, 1 celery, 1 carrot, 2 potato.
For this recipe, you’ll want to just undercook the chicken breast, so that it can finish cooking in the broth. You want tender bites, and over cooking the chicken breast in the pan then cooking it more in the broth will make for a chewy bite.
PS, 3 points to anyone who got my Star Wars references – Solo and Chewy.
PPS, the points are for imaginary credit, not anything running on the page 🙂
