Karl’s Chicken Bone Broth Chili Bean Soup

I roasted a chicken with the express intent of having a carcass to make bone broth later in the week. When the kids decided not to come for dinner, I was left with more than the usual amount of leftovers. After the first meal, I made tacos with the breast meat. With the bits that remained I made this soup.

Karl’s Leftover Chicken Fajita Tacos

I had made a chili chicken for Sunday’s dinner and had plenty of chicken to work with in making other meals. If the chicken is already cooked, tacos are a quick and easy weeknight meal. If you have not roasted a chicken, a deli chicken  makes a good substitute.

Karl’s Three Chile Roast Chicken

I was thinking of roast chicken for Sunday night’s dinner. Last week, I ran out of ancho chile powder and when I went shopping, I picked up several different ground chilies. Jan had requested bone broth later in the week, so I did not want my chicken to be too spicy.

Karl’s Miso Chicken Udon

Eilene has come down with another cold—I do not know what it has been about this year that we keep getting sick. Jan suggested that I make her chicken soup. A favorite of hers is chicken udon.

Karl’s Ying and Yang Cottage Pie

Jan asked for a “healthier” shepherd’s pie for dinner on a weeknight. By “healthier” she meant no lamb or beef and no white potatoes. I decided to use ground turkey as my meat and—since I still wanted a Russet potato topping—I would make a fifty-fifty topping with sweet potatoes.

Karl’s Meyer Lemon Chicken Soup

Jan and I have colds this week, so she asked for chicken soup for dinner. It is Meyer lemon season and I thought that a garlic lemon soup would be the thing to make. Jan was unsure about this, because she thought it would be too sour. My solution was to add a dollop of lemon curd to cut the citric acid.

Papa’s Fine Soup II

The first dish I created on my own—rather than following a recipe—was a soup that Miriam called “Papa’s Fine Soup.” Some powdered lemon grass, chicken, snow peas, green onion, and udon noodles. While this soup has changed over time, it has been a comfort food in our house for almost 30 years.

Karl’s Chicken Marsala and Butter Dumplings

Chicken and dumplings is an classic Southern (U.S.) that is basically a chicken stew topped with biscuit dough. At my house it is a weekday comfort food, whenever someone is stressed out. Although I make this dish once or twice a month, I realized that I took it for granted and have never posted about it.

Karl’s Sub-Saharan African Chicken Stew

The best known Sub-Saharan chicken stew, at least in America, is Ethiopian doro wot, This is a dish with a long ingredients list—complicated by many of them being hidden inside several spice blends. There are, however, many other Sub-Saharan countries, everyone of which has their own version of chicken stew.

Karl’s Apple Wood Smoked Irish Whiskey Chicken Wings and Legs

Jan asked me last week why I never make chicken wings. As is usually the case, at some point in the past she told me that she did not like them. As is also the case, she completely denies ever having said that or that she did not want them that day. Eilene prefers legs to wings, so I threw in some of those as well.
