Stir in chicken bouillon paste. Stir in chicken stock. Add orzo (if subbing for frozen rice wait to add until later). Bring soup to a simmer. About 4-5 minutes from when orzo/pasta is done cooking, stir chard/greens. Reduce heat to medium/medium-low and cook until greens are tender and orzo is cooked to al dente. Stir in turmeric, frozen peas, and chopped chicken just to heat through. If using frozen or pre-cooked rice, add it during this step. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt if needed. I usually add a large pinch of salt or 2 at this step. Be sure to stir salt in well to dissolve before adding more. Garnish with black pepper, a drizzle of olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a fresh dill if you have it. IF USING CHICKEN THIGHS: Salt boneless, skinless thighs and lay out on a sheet tray.

  1. Yasss! More speed scratch! It’s so practical for weeknights. Maybe “speed scratch weeknighting”. Love your videos Bri, I always have them on loop the whole time I’m in the kitchen. Inspiring me to get back in there and keep posting cooking vids on my channel; I fell off it for a couple years.

  2. Speed Scratch sounds like a handy thing to have. How about one on producing the elements to make speed scratch? Like, what about making and freezing mirepoix ahead of time instead of spending money on expensive packaged frozen? Some quality might be lost since flash freezing isn't an option at home, but would that make it untenable?

    What about par-cooking rice, potatoes, etc and freezing them so they can quickly be added to dishes later?

  3. I always detested the idea of using pre-made ingredients being labeled as "cheating". If your goal isn't to make Michelin-star-restaurant dish but to make something wholesome and tasty without slaving over the pot for three hours, then use the bullion, use frozen vegetables, use the leftover chicken! Not every meal has to be made entirely from scratch to be great!
    Good quality bullion and store bought stock are good and you didn't have to watch over a pot of stock for the whole day. It isn't as good as that made from scratch stock, but it doesn't have to!
    This idea that every dish you eat has to be the most amazing thing ever and people should judge you if it isn't is such a gross overcorrection of eating nothing but pre-made dishes like these thanksgiving dinners that you put in the microwave, etc.
    I love the idea of Speed Scratch being a series! Loads of people would benefit from these kinds of recipes, bc the main limiting factor for most isn't availability of ingredients but time.
    Making delicious food quickly, using things like already cooked meat or frozen vegetables that are already diced, etc. sounds really good!

  4. I had COVID recently and since I am alone I made improvised chicken soup: I cut up the mirepoix fresh. While that was going on, I poached a chicken breast in the Instant Pot with herbs. I did just as you did for broth — boxed broth + BtB roasted chicken base. I had some acini de pepe laying around so I used that…a bit of frozen chopped spinach, a cut-up zucchini that had seen better days, and bingo — Jewish penicillin nothing. This was Jewish paxlovid.

  5. you should do an avgolemono chicken soup. im greek and growing up it was one of my favourite things my grandma made. i always added like soooo much lemon to it, i was a very sour loving kid. and i think avgolemono is a relatively easy soup to make, depending on the recipe.

  6. Speed scratch is a seriously under-represented area in Youtube cooking and to be honest, it's more likely to be the kind of thing i'd make most days. More speed scratch means I can pick up more speed scratch tricks for my own recipes. Yes! Do more!

  7. Hi Brian, personally me and my husband don't really like the speedy videos. We really enjoy cooking and we like to learn new stuff from you! Besides that we like to cook as fresh as possible and I feel these videos are less fresh than your usual videos. Some of these products are hard to get here in Europe so another reason why we like fresh ingredients! But keep up the good work, we will watch everything you post!

  8. A speed scratch series would be something that I would really look forward to. So much of my fridge and pantry feels like dead ends. I'm glad to go grocery shopping for the majority of my fresh ingredients, but I particularly like when I have things on hand already.
