This is my third occasion to make this soup and I LOVE IT!!! The inspiration for this soup came from a recipe posted by a blogging buddy,Penny from the Lake Lure Kitchen. In place of her (WONDERFUL) teriyaki chicken thigh served on rice (Another crock pot dish); I present my adapted Chicken Teriyaki Crock Pot Soup!
Made all the easier by using pieces from my beloved Rotisserie Chicken (Yes, making this one of my most delicious "52 Uses for a Rotisserie Chicken"!
BUT... Did you ever have one of those
days... well, one of those 5 Minutes? I did yesterday. Indeed I made this soup. Everything I post here is original, photography included, just to prove I made the dish. But I had one of those equipment malfunctions yesterday. I photographed the dish, along with a new compliment to the soup... Some Thai Scallion Pancakes I used as crackers. They came out great, worked REALLY amazing for the Asian flavored croutons...
But I do have a post from my past (former internet life (a different blog identity)... Cong You Bing (Scallion Pancakes).
In all humility, I must say that it is a very good instructional post. Lots of photos and how-to instructions to get these fried bread Thai restaurant appetizer treats duplicated in your home kitchen.
They take very little hands on time (the dough does sit in the fridge resting for awhile... but hands on, very little time), and as I said...
A GREAT addition to the Soup!
OK, on to the soup...
I made this in a Crock pot, cause, "If it ain't ready by 6 AM, We ain't gonna eat tonight". A great way to allow all of these more complex tastes to meld into a soup. And of course, a great way to make a soup while the cat's away!
Here's what I did...
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Soy Sauce
- 1/2 Cup Cider Vinegar
- 1 tsp Ground Ginger
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp Fresh ground Pepper
- 2 Cups Chicken Stock
- 1 Cup Carrots, sliced
- 1 Cup Onions, Sliced
- 1 Cup Celery, Sliced
- 2 Cups Meat taken from a Rotisserie Chicken, chopped
- To Taste Salt and Pepper
- This is a one dish meal... A Crock Pot. Turn it to medium heat (to cook all day, Approximately 12 hours)
- In the bottom of the Crock Pot, whisk together the Sugar, Soy Sauce, Cider Vinegar, Ginger and Garlic. Season with a couple of pinches Pepper (Plenty of Salt in the Soy sauce, so no need to salt).
- Add the chicken now and give it a few minutes to soak the teriyaki sauce into the meat. About the same amount of time it takes you to slice the vegetables.
- Add the chicken stock.
- Add the Carrots, Celery and Onions, give it a good stir, cover and enjoy your day...
- Garnish with Green Onions and serve with Scallion Pancakes
- 6-12 hours later, serve hot and ENJOY!
Teriyaki Chicken and WAFFLES!!!
Really, this is a WONDERFUL morning after breakfast. Makes sense, just think of the waffles as slightly sweet croutons. Be sure to crust up your waffles so they have a crunch to them. Otherwise the waffles become too soggy soaking in the soup.
Personally, I loved the savory breakfast alternative and would suggest any of these trendy waffle stations set up for fancy Sunday Brunches to add a savory alternative!
So, yet again, a wonderful addition to my "52 Uses For a Rotisserie Chicken"! Healthy, easy one dish meal and all the cooking work gets done early in the morning with dinner ready when you walk in the door!
What could be easier and tastier?
This soup is absolutely delicious, nothing but vegetables, thick and rich and those AMAZING Dumplings, beyond description. And I am pleased to list this as one of my "52 Recipes for Soup, Chili or Chowder"
