Prep Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours
Yield: 8 servings
Rye Bread Bowls:
3 tablespoons yeast
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 3/4 cups warm water
4 1/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups rye flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 - 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked and chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
6 cups chicken broth (I use home-made )
3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
2 cups whole milk
1 cup shredded cheese
2 1/2 cups corn kernels
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
Rye Bread Bowls:
1. Combine water, yeast, and brown sugar in a large bowl and stir to dissolve. Add salt, rye flour and whole wheat flour and mix well. Add all-purpose flour 1 cup at a time until dough is no longer sticky. Knead for about 5 minutes then place in a well oiled bowl. Cover and put in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour until doubled in size.
2. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
3. Divide dough into 8 balls and place on greased baking sheets at least 2 inches apart. Cover with damp towel and let continue to rise while oven is heating.
4. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes until golden brown.
For Corn Chowder:
5. In a medium skillet, sauté onion, garlic, and celery with oil until tender. Add flour and stir constantly until thickened. Reduce heat to low and whisk in 1 cup chicken broth until smooth.
6. Combine veggie flour mixture with potatoes and remaining broth in a large pot and bring to a boil.
7. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered 15 - 20 minutes until potatoes are tender.
8. Add in cooked chicken, corn and milk and simmer, uncovered 10 - 15 minutes longer until it begins to thicken. Stir in cheese, nutmeg, and salt and pepper to taste.
9. To make bread bowls, cut tops at an angle in a circle and use a spoon to pop tops out. Fill with soup and serve hot.
As you waste your breath complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last.
Appreciate what you have.
Be thankful and stop complaining.
Live more, complain less.
Have more smiles, less stress.
