    greksgirl's Note:

    I adapted this from a WW cookbook for my parents who always get chicken with rice soup. It is best when made totally from scratch and the chicken is cooked in a crock-pot but can be made using a store roasted chicken. I have also used red leaf lettuce and spinach in place of the escarole.

    1. 1
      Remove excess fat and giblets from the chicken and discard.
    2. 2
      In a 5-qt. crock-pot combine the chicken broth, chicken, celery, carrot, saffron, sage, thyme, bay leaf and kosher salt.
    3. 3
      Cook on high for 4-5 hours or until the chicken falls off the bone. Remove the chicken and cool; debone and cut into bite-sized pieces.
    4. 4
      Strain the broth through a sieve lined with 2 paper towels, this removes the sediment and some of the fat. This can be done a day ahead and more fat can be removed from the top of the chilled broth.
    5. 5
      In a large sauce pan heat the oil over medium-high heat, saute the onion, carrots and celery until the onion is transulent.
    6. 6
      Add the strained broth and bring to a boil.
    7. 7
      Add the rice or noodles and simmer covered for 15 minutes.
    8. 8
      Stir in the chicken, cover; simmer until the rice/noodles are tender and the chicken is heated through.
    9. 9
      Remove from heat and add the escarole; cover and set aside until the escarole wilts, about 2 minutes.
    10. 10
      Add salt and pepper to taste.

      Excellent! DH couldn't find escarole at the store & I forgot to tell him that red leaf lettuce would work, so we went without. But, everything else went according to the recipe. I loved the dressed up broth flavored with the saffron, sage & thyme. You could taste each individual flavor, yet they all melded together into one; just a great harmony of flavors! I used the rice option & everyone thought it was amazing. It was such comfort food! I ate the canned stuff when I was a kid but didn't like it after adulthood & now I can have chicken soup with rice again anytime I want. Easy, homemade & delicious! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, greksgirl! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2009 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :)
