Chippewa Lakes Chicken Wild
David W. Anderson
Recipe(s) from FAMOUS DAVE'S BACKROADS & SIDESTREETS by Dave Anderson.
Donna and I really like his soup. It
is probably our all-time favorite soup that does not have tomatoes in it.
Not a tomato or potato can be found in this soup. We do stray from the
original recipe with the first two ingredients. We reduce these two
ingredients in half because we prefer our soups a little soupier than Dave.
I am a frequent customer of Famous Dave's
Restaurant in Richmond, Virginia. I used to say that my favorite dish
at Famous Dave's was the ribs. But after many trips to Famous Dave's I
now include the entire menu as my favorites. He has a chicken and wild
rice soup that is absolutely wonderful If you haven't tried Famous
Dave's then I suggest you do. If there is no Famous Dave's close to
you, try his cookbook:
http://www.famousdaves.com/shop.cfm or you can find it at Barnes & Noble
or Amazon. All proceeds from cookbook sales are donated to The
LifeSkills Center for Leadership.
