1 tablespoons olive oil

0.5 large onion diced

2 carrots diced

2 celery stalks diced

2 cloves garlic minced

1 teaspoons crushed red pepper

0.25 cup white wine

6 cup chicken stock

1 tablespoons chicken base

1 rotisserie chicken shredded

1 tablespoons chopped parsley

2 cup water

2 eggs

0.25 cup whole milk

1 cup flour

2 tablespoons fresh dill chopped



In a large Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat. Add in the onions and cook till translucent, about 3 minutes. Add in carrots, celery, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add in the salt and pepper to season. Pour in white wine and reduce till almost dry. Add in chicken stock, chicken base & water. Cook for 30 minutes. Put shredded chicken, parsley, and spaetzle in right before serving.

Dill Spaetzle

In a medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs, milk, and seasoning. Whisk in the flour and dill. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Using a spaetzle maker or large holed sieve, place it over the water and ladle a small portion at a time so the spaetzle does not clump. It should only take a couple minutes to cook through and then cooked spaetzle will float to the top. Remove using a slotted spoon and add to the soup.
