Crockpot Chicken Soup With Shiitake Mushrooms

It's still kind of chilly in the Northeast. It's after Easter, so I should getting some spring cleaning done, but it doesn't feel much like spring. Well, that's my excuse anyway. There are flowers blooming but I still need a coat when I go outside. On the bright side, it's perfect weather for some chicken soup in a crockpot. We made two dinners out of it. Once with rice, once with noodles. Mmmm noodles.

Crockpot Chicken Soup With Shiitake Mushrooms
Makes 4 small servings

3 chicken drumsticks
5 dried shiitake mushrooms
1 onion, quartered
2 carrots, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 potato, scrubbed & cubed
1/3 cup Marsala
1 3/4 cup water
1 1/2 tsp salt

Combine everything in the crockpot. Add one more drumstick and mushroom if you wish. Mine simply won't fit. Pour more water in to cover everything if needed. Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 9 hours. Enjoy with cooked rice or noodles!

We had Chinese style noodles from the Asian food market. It's almost as good as Japanese ramen. Speaking of which, I can't wait to go back to Boston and have some more. But in the mean time, chicken soup with noodles will do!
