Escarole Soup with Chicken and Rice
Since the chicken is cut into such small pieces, it cooks in no time. Add it to the pot, simmer very briefly, and then serve the soup right away before the chicken has a chance to overcook.

3 tablespoons olive oil
1 carrot, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
7 1/2 cups canned low sodium chicken broth
3/4 cup arborio rice
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 pound escarole, (1 small head), leaves washed and cut into 1/2-inch ribbons
1-1/3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, (about 4 in all), cut into 1/2-inch dice
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
6 tablespoons Grated Parmesan cheese

In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the carrot, onion, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the broth, rice, and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 10 minutes.

Add the escarole to the pot. Bring to a simmer and cook until the escarole is almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken and pepper. Bring to a simmer and continue simmering for just 1 minute. The chicken should be done.

Remove the pot from the heat. Stir in the parsley and Parmesan.

Wine Recommendation: Avoid a red wine - its tannins will accentuate the bitterness of the greens. Instead, try a rich tocai friulano, the nuttiness of which will complement the escarole.

Where most chowders have milk as their base, this one uses chicken stock and pureed corn, with a little half-and-half stirred in just before serving to make it nice and creamy.

Turkey, sweet potatoes, sage - it’s Thanksgiving in a bowl! Half of the sweet-potato mixture is pureed, thickening the soup every so slightly and coloring it a pretty pale orange.
