The Chicken Soup You'd Eat on a Mediterranean Getaway
Fresh lemon and dill are fantastic with fish dishes, lending a bright and sunny note to an array of mild seafoods. As it turns out, these two ingredients can also add wonderful new dimensions to humdrum chicken soup. This recipe, from Samantha Skaggs' new book Real Food Slow Cooker Suppers
, has you simmer bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts and thighs in the Crock-Pot until they're tender; then you remove the skin and bones, gently tear the meat into large chunks and return them to the slow cooker, along with orzo, lemon juice and fresh dill. In 10 minutes, you'll have a vibrant soup that does an impressive job of beating the winter blahs.
