      This was perfect for after Thanksgiving. I utilized meat from the turkey drumsticks & homemade broth. I loved the use of poultry seasoning. All in all a great pot of soup! Good luck in the contest! :-)

      Great Comfort food! I didn`t remove the skin till after 20 minutes of cooking the legs then discarded. MORE FLAVOR! Then found the chicken not to be cooked which is fine because it continued after adding back. I removed the meat and added the bones back to the broth. That is were you`ll find lots of flavor. Let it simmer with an additional 1 cup water for 20 minutes to extract all the goodness the bones has to offer. Removed the bones then added lentils, onions and using 1 teaspoon seasonings. I also did up the corn. zukes, and carrots by twice the amount. Because they are good for you! When adding the veggies I added the chicken back to complete the cooking. Tossed in some roasted garlic and a bunch of parsley and we enjoyed. This will give you comfort with whatever ails you. Thank you! Made for Craze-E-Contest Nov 2010.

      This is a lovely soup. It is a little fiddly if you start with fresh drumsticks, making it a perfect recipe for using up leftovers (as the previous reviewer did). The flavour is spot-on. Thanks so much and good luck.
