    Chef at Heart's Note:

    I got the idea for this recipe from a book called Cook Milk in any flavour you like. Mine is similar but with many modifications. I use store bought bread bowls, however I have noticed bread bowl recipes on this site. The other option is to serve it with dumplings

      Wonderful, warm, comfort food for a cold WI winter! I used leftover chicken with 2 cups of the reserved drippings (and roasted garlic). I added one more cup of water. Added green onions and some salt. Very easy to make. Served some of it in an round Italian bread bowl that the kids devoured too. Thanks Chef. Will definitely make again.
