Yesterday I posted I needed to make made from scratch chicken noodle soup for a very sick friend Margaret Chaffin and her husband Jim. Jim is staying home taking good care of her. Margaret as you know is a cancer patient again for the second time in two years for two separate illnesses.

This morning Cindy and I set out to make chicken soup per lowercase bill. Thanks lowercase bill! ;)

I was going to make some real potato rolls from a recipe I got from Grandpas Grub but, I think I will do that tomorrow. Thanks Kent :)

We picked up 2 2.5 pound chicks and I riped the skin off of one so it would take on some smoke flavor per Jethro Bodine. Thanks Stikeman. :)

I dusted them with Tasty Licks Mellow Yellow. Good stuff. ;) I grilled them till the breast came to 180F IT.


Then I took them straight to the stock pot with a couple of gallons of H20 and carrots and celery and onions and a little S&P.


We simmered until the meat began to fall off the bone about 3 hours.


Then we took everything out of the stock pot and took the chicken off the bones and tossed the used up veggies.



We divided the chicken stock about 2 quarts each and made a batch of plain chicken noodle soup with a few carrots for my friend who need to eat this nourishment.



Right after I took the chicks off the egg I setup for searing hamburgers for my friend Jim.

I grilled 8 and took Jim 4 with buns. :)



Next we turned to Village Idiot for a Chicken and dumpling recipe. Thanks Village Idiot. :)

Let me tell you this stuff is great! :P

We added 2 quarts to our 2 quarts and made some dumplings along with the chicken and carrots and celery and onions and garlic...


I rolled out the dough and sliced the dough with my pizza cutter. ;)


And plunked them in to the simmering chicken soup.


Here is one of 4 bowls I ate. This stuff is better than anything... :P :P :P

I couldn't believe how good this stuff is. :woohoo: :pinch: :silly:
