"Good soup is one of the prime ingredients of good living. For soup can do more to lift the spirits and stimulate the appetite than any other one dish." Louis P. De Gruy
When I am teaching hands on cooking classes – whether it is the community or physicians – I will often mention roasting a chicken on Sunday to have during the week for other meals. One of the best uses of those leftovers is to make soup and I absolutely love this curried chicken soup.
The one key to making this soup is to not rush things. Keeping the heat at a very low simmer will cook the vegetables and chicken but not overcook them. If you turn the heat up too much the soup will become cloudy.
