What to do with leftover Armico-- Soup!

I am just getting the hang of this blog thing. Rather than edit the old posts with variations, etc, you are supposed to add a new post. Duh.

Anyway, after Kol Nidre we had one chicken leg and thigh and a LOT of vegetables/sauce left. There wasn't enough for dinner for more than one, so we made a soup, and it was great and very easy. Here is how:
  1. Degrease the leftovers to the extent that you can.
  2. Scrape all the vegetables, sauce and jellied juices into a pot.
  3. Add an equal amount of water and bring to the boil. Salt well (but taste!). Simmer about 10 minutes.
  4. Skin bone and shred whatever chicken is left and simmer about 5 minutes more to warm through. Taste for salt again.
  5. That's it, and you won't believe how good it is.

If no one in the house is low-carbing it, you can add a small handful of ditalini pasta or arborio rice. It will make it a lot thicker and more substantial.
