Soup's On!!

WoooHooo!!  It's finally Soup Season again!!  Check out the first batch of Cheater Chicken Soup that I made just the other day!!

Get some water on the boil, it's time to make some soup!!!
Always try to make more than one kind of pasta for your chicken noodle soup, yo!
Having more types of pasta sizes and shapes helps to make the magic happen!
Trust me on this, yo!

Grab one of the last remaining batches of soup stock you've still got hangin' out from last season!
Fire up another burner and get that stock heatin' up!

This  IS  cheater chicken soup, is it not?  Well then, grab a few packages of cheater veggies!

Don't forget the schmaltz!

One package of corn niblets oughta do it!

Another package of Normandy Blend won't hurt, but....

...you have to remove the broccoli first though!
If you leave the broccoli in, it will make the leftover soup smell like a gym sock when you reheat it!

Look at that schmaltz meltin' back into the soup stock!
Remember how we made it??  If not, take another look!

Now, time to add your favorite chickeny seasoning blends!
From left-to-right, Lawry's Rotisserie Chicken, Vegeta (European-style chicken seasoning), and Lawry's Perfect Blend Chicken & Poultry rub!

Add the spices once the stock is boiling!

Awwwww yeahhhhh!  Lookin' good!!

This being Cheater Chicken soup, I've decided  to add the meat from a rotisserie chicken from Sam's Club!
Get to de-boning that chicken while the soup simmers with the veggies you've just added!

You'll get between 4 and 5 cups of chicken from one of the rotisserie birds from Sam's, depending on how much of it you eat while you are de-boning it!

Once the rest of the soup is ready, toss on some of the chicken and serve it up while it's hot!

Could I have added all sorts of other things to this batch of soup?! Of course!
Was I in a starving-hurry and unwilling/unable to do so bec I didn't anything more to add?  You betcha!
It came out damn good (and quick & easy) anyway!!
Now, get to makin' a batch of your own! It's Soup Season, damnit! :)
