"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
Boil chicken and remove from bones (left over roasted or baked chicken is fine)
Salt & Pepper to Taste
Heat broth until boiling and then reduce heat and sprinkle in corn meal. Whisk until thickened and stir in chicken. Add salt and pepper to taste. No measurements as the cooks long ago did not use measurements. Sometimes they might have a lot of broth sometimes not.
Kids love this soup. It is real comfort food and the one they ask for when they are sick. Of course some used home raised chicken, simmered chicken broth, and probably fresh ground corn.
