Food writer Norene Gilletz has adapted her grandmother's chicken soup
recipe for cooking by microwave. In a soup kettle, combine chicken and
salted water. Bring to a boil. Skim surface. Add carrots, celery, onion,
dill and pepper to the hot broth. Cover and simmer until meat is tender and
vegetables are cooked about two hours. Strain and refrigerate. Remove
the fat that congeals on top and discard. Serve soup with noodles or rice,
cooked separately or in the strained broth. Microwave method: Gilletz
prefers this method, because all the ingredients and can be added at once
and there is no need to skim the broth. In a bowl, pour boiling water over
chicken. Trim off excess fat. Place chicken in a five-quart microwave-safe
casserole. Cut carrots and celery into chunks. Add to chicken along with
onion, dill and seasonings. cover with water. To prevent boiling over, take
care water remains 1 1/2 inches below top of the casserole. Cover casserole
and microwave at high (100 %) power for 30 - 35 minutes or until soup is
boiling. Stir. Simmer at medium power for 25 - 30 minutes. Let stand
covered for 15 - 20 minutes. Strain soup. Serve as above. From The Gazette,
