So, I went to make dinner today, but the chicken breast I had was.... Subpar, to say the least. I said to heck with it, and just threw it in a pot to boil with some veggie stock and spices, thinking I'd just make a Burrito with it or something. After a while boiling, it still wasn't that great, but surprisingly the broth itself was pretty good. So I decided make some soup instead. Took out the Chicken and added some cut veggie to make a light soup, when an Idea hit me. instead of just cutting up the Meh chicken and throwing it back in the pot, I took about 1/4 of the broth and added it to a bowl with the chicken and then mixed it all together with a Hand Blinder till it was not quite a paste, but more than minced. I then added THIS back into the pot with the stewing veggies. I have no real Idea why I decided to try it like this, but surprisingly it turn out really good. The Chicken-whatever-I-made, thickened up the soup quite a bit and spread the chickeny flavor evenly through it all. I whipped up some Pasta and threw it all together in a bowl and I don't regret it! I definitely make it again, but it got me thinking; Are there any real Techniques/Dishes that does something similar to this, I might be able to look at and improve on what I was doing?
