Roasted Chicken with Winter Vegetable Soup

Roasted Chicken with Winter Vegetable Soup

It is a beautiful winter night. Cold and raining. Perfect night for soup.I started searching in my cook books for a new recipe for vegetable soup. There are so many recipes that is was so hard to decide which direction to go. Couple that most were with roasted vegetables. I had most of the vegetables in my refrigerator drawer. To the grocery store I went and a couple of minutes later I came out with wonderful leg quarters that would be perfect to cook with . At first I wanted to use the chicken for the broth, and then I decided not to, but, to have them roast alongside the vegetables and see what happens. The combination was quite well received and the whole, huge bowl ( thank you Mom for my early Christmas present) was eaten with no muss, no fuss. Very rich and filling. Definitely left over for tomorrow, yummy.Simple, fast, easy is my motto during the week.Enjoy.Giangi
