I am thinking about making a chicken soup to serve for lunch on Saturday. I will need to put it on the crockpot by 4p.m. on Friday due to religious reasons (Sabbath).
Any preparation suggestions?
I was thinking about pre-boiling the chicken on Thursday night (and refrigerating until Friday) and then taking the meat off the bones and using the chicken stock on Friday along with some of the meat. To this I would add garlic, onions, parsnips, celery, etc. I'm not really looking for a receipe, I'm really looking for help on how to make it work.
Can chicken get overcooked? Do I need to have a lot of water in case some steams off? Will veggies fall apart and disintegrate on Saturday from being cooked too long?
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
