Thread: What I did with leftover rotisserie chicken

    Default What I did with leftover rotisserie chicken


    I was in the mood for soup, and decided to try this simple recipe I
    had saved. It was not only good it was positively awesome! Hubby
    loved it so much he went back for a second big bowl full and told me
    to PLEASE make that one again!


    MULLIGATAWNY (CHICKEN) SOUP

    1/2 c. butter

    1 c. diced onion

    1 c. diced celery

    1 c. diced carrots

    1 small potato, peeled and diced

    1/2 tsp. curry powder

    1/4 c. uncooked rice

    6 c. chicken broth

    1 (8 oz.) can tomatoes, diced with liquid

    2 bay leaves

    1/8 tsp. Thyme

    2 c. diced cooked chicken

    Salt and pepper to taste


    Directions:

    In a large pot, melt butter.

    Add celery, onions and carrots and sauté in butter for 5 minutes.

    Add curry and rice, sauté 1 minute more.

    Stir in chicken broth, tomatoes, bay leaves and thyme.

    Heat to boiling, cover and simmer 25 minutes.

    Add salt, pepper and chicken just before serving.

    Garnish with parsley.

    Serves 6-8.


    *********************


    (I used one quart of my home made chicken broth and two cups of water
    with one Knorr chicken bouillion cube for the rest of the broth)

    This was so incredibly simple and so good you can't believe it.

    The only thing I might do differently is use a tad more Curry powder,
    since we both like it.

    I love Mulligatawny soup, and whenever I've had it in a restaurant, it's
    paint remover spicey hot! I love that.

    Great idea for leftovers, and homemade stock is always the best.

    I'm sure it's delish without the spuds and rice, too.

    thanks Evelyn

    Muligatawny soup is one of my favourites, this is a slight variation, so
    i'm interested in trying it!

    (note taken on increase the curry LOL)

    One smallish potato cubed over maybe 6 bowls of soup isn't much, and
    the 1/4 cup of rice is barely noticeable. They could certainly be
    eliminated and more veggies substituted, I am sure!

    I can only suggest that you try it! The basic recipe would be the
    same with more veggies substituted! We both liked it as it was, and
    enjoyed it well with no ill results.

    To you, perhaps, but I don't take meds and both spike me to the bejeebies.

    14 cup of dry rice is a lot. And a single bite of white potato does me bad.

    But neither has much taste, that's from all the other ingredients, so I
    think it'd be fine, no?

    Yes, of course! LOL!

    It was only a quarter of a cup, and I used basmati rice, which is
    lower in starch than regular rice. Not much, but a bit.

    Used to love it, but it doesn't love me back.

    And I'm not about to take drugs so I can eat starch, I'm finally over
    the habit.

    But if I EVER find out I'm terminal, I'm going right out and eat a fresh
    hot slice of pizza with the crust!

    It's been YEARS.

    My dietician says that the lowest carb grain is barley. I often use
    that in soup, but I think it would require a lot longer cooking than
    is recommended for this particular soup.

    For yourself, you can simply NOT use the potato or the rice and
    increase the other vegetables you find you tolerate better. I
    imagine a cook as creative as you are will do a great job of
    converting the recipe and finding substitutions!

    Actually I was thinking (for myself) that wild rice might have been
    good in this recipe too, but that also requires longer cooking than
    the 25 minutes they suggest.

    Next time I make it, I will try to experiment some. The first thing I
    will do is increase the curry powder. I will want it spicier!

    Your dietitian might want to look that up. I know that I only tolerate
    about a spoonful, and only if it's not all soft and bloated from
    overcooking or soaking in soup. From all I've read, since wls requires
    so little food consumption, and protein and fat are the only two
    essential macronutrients in human nutrition without which you develop
    starvation and other deficiency problems, and starches are so nutrient
    impoverished and calorically dense, they are typically advised against.
    Especially if they take up room that protein, fat and nutrient dense
    veggies might otherwise. That's how other folks I know have been told to
    eat; protein, enough fat so you don't die or develop disorders, and veggies.

    Sure I can. But I don't see any point in coming to a diabetic specific
    newsgroup to find a recipe with much of it's calories coming from rice
    and potato. I can find those anywhere folks don't have diabetes. It's
    not just me acting out of a desire to control, I take it as a kind of
    personal lack of caring for the needs of others. I know that's not your
    intent, but I infer a dismissal of the central role of diet control of
    diabetes implicit in having a diabetes specific food group.

    It's discouraging to me to start reading and realize how many added and
    unnecessary carbs are there, and I start thinking that the poster
    doesn't care that the recipe is so unfriendly to so many of us.

    yes, I know it is.

    I just want to make it clear, though, that you've mischaracterized my
    reponse as objecting to anyone posting about eating any carbs at all.
    it's a falsehood and it's never happened.

    it's a response to carbs and amounts that are not diabetic friendly in
    most cases.

    but if your goal is to suit yourself, that's what you'll do.

    and if my goal is to find diabetic friendly recipes here, I may comment
    if I feel like it.

    Dear Susan,

    I honestly do NOT think I mischaracterized your responses. You do
    seem to object to any food that contains more carbs than your own
    personal regimen can handle. No problem... we all do that to some
    degree.

    That soup did not spike me or my husband.

    But then, that recipe made a lot of soup and a very little amount of
    carbohydrates per serving. I have a quart and a half left after I
    ate one bowl and my husband ate two!

    Feel free to ignore my recipes if they are not useful to you. That's
    what I do!

    Not a huge difference in carb count but considerably lower on the
    Glycemic Index and lower on the Glycemic load which makes it a better
    choice for some diabetics. I personally find that lentils are better
    than barley for me bg-wise.

    I can't eat lentils in any amount. Odd because beans are fine for me. I
    can eat a can of Campbell's beef and vegetable soup with barely and it
    doesn't spike me. I don't eat it very often at all though because I worry
    about the beef upseting my stomach even though it is a small amount. And
    there is very little barely in a can. Maybe 2T at best.

    I have a recipe which I love for a tomato and barley soup. I can't eat that
    at all. Spike city.

    Basmati is a long chain starch that is harder/slower to be processed

    i can't get technical on it, but Quentin explained it very well on the
    technical side of things
