A whole chicken is simmered low and slow with vegetables and herbs; the vegetables are pureed into the broth and the tender chicken meat is removed from the bones, shredded and returned to the pot for a supremely rich and satisfying chicken soup.
Substitution For Turnips: A rutabaga is a great substitute for a purple topped turnip. They are a bit sweeter and add wonderful flavor to chicken soup. Peel or slice off the dark waxy skin and cut the flesh into large chunks. Use about 2 cups of cubed rutabaga.
