Just finished enjoying my soup for lunch and found myself tipping the thermos and scraping the sides in order to savor every morsel. The combination of the lemon, wine and vinegar (and the herbs) married into a tangy and rich base that showcased each of the soup components turning a "fix-it and forget it" preparation into an unforgettable meal. I made three smallish changes, none of which diminished the results: used bullion instead of broth and replaced the marinated artichokes with the plain canned variety. In both instances, my choice to use the higher amounts of the herbs ans spices along with 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped Greek oregano compensated nicely. Thanks.
What a delicious soup. I love broth soups. It cooked on low for about 6 hrs on low and it was well cooked in that time. It's flavor is on the acidic side but it's quite pleasant and a welcome change from the usual chicken soup. The artichoke is yumm but I did trim back on the vinegar by half. This soup and a toasted bun made a great Fall dinner.
This was totally new to me, but I will be making it again! I loved the mild tang in the finished soup. I started with precooked chunks of chicken and then used the crockpot method. At the end I was rewarded with amazing soup. Yum! i'm glad I went ahead and made the full pot so I can have more for lunch today. I did thicken it slightly with cornstarch. Next time I would add some color (red peppers? ) Served with garlic toast and a cucumber salad.
