Foodie Friday...Chicken soup with couscous

April 25, 2014

0 Comments


Chicken noodle soup is the first thing to enter people’s minds when they think comfort food. It’s hearty and warm without being overly heavy. And even in the summer, a big bowl of chicken soup can be comforting and delicious. Sometimes, however, it is a little fun to make a few tweaks to the classics. This chicken soup replaces noodles with pearl couscous for a new an unexpected twist on the old traditional soup.

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breast, trimmed of fat
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 large carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 medium yellow onions, chopped
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup pearl couscous
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • salt and pepper to taste

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Generously season the chicken breast with salt and pepper. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake 25 to 30 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
  3. While the chicken cooks, melt the butter in a large pot. Add in the garlic and cook 30 seconds until fragrant.
  4. Add the celery, carrots and onions and stir to combine. Cook until the vegetables begin to soften, about 7 minutes.
  5. Add in the stock and stir. Bring to a boil then reduce to simmer.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove to a cutting board and slice into large chunks. Add the chicken to the pot and return to a boil.
  7. While it cooks, melt 2 Tbsp. of butter in a sauce pan.
  8. Add flour and whisk to combine. It should have the consistency of a paste.
  9. Add to the pot and stir to combine. This will give the soup a bit of richness.
Stir in cooked couscous and cook an additional two minutes until completely hot throughout. Serve immediately.

Australia in the Winter Months

August 12, 2020

I’ve never been able to pull it off BUT I’ve always wanted to go to Australia – everything I’ve heard about it fascinates me. That said I often watch those “survival” TV shows where a person takes a wrong turn in a desert, forest, mountain or the outback and is lost for days on end. Then an “outdoor survivalist” comes on and says, “If only they had done thus-and-so – they would have had food and water.”

“Come Fly With Me”

August 05, 2020

Over the years, the airline industry has experienced many twists and turns – and one of the most remarkable has been the evolution of the stewardess or airline hostess. That said I was stopped in my tracks by an article in Travel & Leisure, April 2020 titled “Taking Wing.” It featured a photo of a flight attendant’s dress from 1965 and was skillfully written by Ann Hood who has delivered a detailed on-the-scene report.

July 29, 2020

In a city like New York, that has a population of close to nine million, it’s great to know that there’s something for everyone. This gave me the idea to write about fun and/or favorite spots in all five boroughs, namely: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island. So, in this blog we’ll cover places I’ve personally enjoyed over the years and spots mentioned in an article that ran in Condé Nast Traveler magazine in April 2020. Here are five slices of the Big Apple:
