I bought the pre-cooked and diced chicken from the deli section so that was one less thing I had to do. I also was able to find a “soup starter kit” with diced onion, celery, and carrots - thank you Schnucks! I didn’t however make the “rivels” for this recipe. Well, I guess technically I TRIED to make them, but I couldn’t get it to have a dough like consistency and decided not to even try dropping it in the broth to cook at that point. So we had chicken and vegetable soup and it was pretty good!
I still had some bread crumbs leftover from that Brunswick Stew I made forever ago (that was so yum by the way, check out the blog post here), so that’s what my husband and I put on top instead of oyster crackers which is my typical go-to. I will say this soup is good, but fairly plain. There weren’t any spices called for in the recipe. I’ll give it a thumbs up.
After baking, the streusel had just the right amount of crunch to make the pie really good. I will say that I still have no clue was “cut in butter” actually means. The streusel itself tasted good, but there was a lot of flour leftover that didn’t really mix well with everything. I’ll give this pie a thumbs up as well, still have a lot to get through from this book!
