I love Nick Stellino’s recipes so naturally I wanted to try this soup. I already had chicken broth from boiling down the bones and gizzards. I deboned some chicken thighs and threw them in the food processor for the ground chicken.
Of course, the breadcrumbs from the barley bread make any recipe great. Throw in the farm eggs, celery, carrots and herbs from the garden and we almost have all the ingredients on hand! Actually the only thing I had to buy was the cheese as I have barley in the pantry and make soy milk at home.
The result? Delicious. I did add some chopped chard as I had some growing. Loved the flavor- just the recipe for a cold day!
