Chicken Cassoulet Soup Recipe

Chicken Cassoulet Soup Recipe

After my sister spent a year in France as an au pair, I created this lighter, easier version of traditional French cassoulet for her. It uses chicken instead of the usual duck.—Bridget M. Klusman, Otsego, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Cook: 6 hours YIELD:7 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Jones Dairy Farm All Natural Pork Sausage Roll
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 pound cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 medium carrots, shredded
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dry vermouth or chicken broth
  • 5 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon fennel seed, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers, optional
  • 1/2 pound Jones Dairy Farm Dry-Aged Bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
  • 2. Transfer to a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. Add the water, chicken, beans, carrots, onion, vermouth, bouillon, garlic, thyme, fennel and if desired, lavender. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until heated through.

Editor's Note: Look for dried lavender flowers in spice shops. If using lavender from the garden, make sure it hasn’t been treated with chemicals.
