One of the main reasons I was excited to get home from all the travel, was the prospect of working on the “hotel food re-do”. And I was thrilled to see that Turkey Club was in the lead as it is a pretty standard go-to order of mine! But when I took a look when I got back in town, a late surge by the Chicken Caesar Salad created a deadlock in the voting (nice drama huh?). So I guess the final vote was mine…and well, I chose both!
Simply put: the first of my re-do’s has set a pretty high bar for the turkey club! Because this Chicken Caesar Soup was not only delicious, it was extremely easy to make. And what a cool experience to slurp on that first spoon full and be instantly reminded of the classic, crisp salad. With familiar flavors and ingredients, I urge you to try this one on your own. And with an easy to follow recipe card (see attachment), I hope you will!
Starting off with a base of anchovies and onions gave this soup the perfect background flavors of your favorite caesar dressing. Homemade chicken stock and roasted chicken meat only add to the depth and are rounded out perfectly by the parmesan, egg yolks, and a dash of worcesterhire! With kale soaking in the flavors of the broth in place of the classic romaine, you will find yourself falling in love with this re-invented classic! Enjoy!
