"Pot on fire" is the literal translation of this French phase but in food terms it refers to a French dish of meat and vegetables simmered together creating a flavorful broth. These classic French flavors unite in our surprisingly delicious first course soup. There are plenty of flavors you'll recognize and some you won't. That's because in addition to chicken, leeks, carrots, chicken broth, and wine, we're adding rutabaga and turnips. The result is a clean, fresh tasting soup that's very skinny. One serving contains 142 calories and 4 grams of fat. A regular recipe contains 294 calories and 14 grams of fat.

- Season and brown chicken well in a hot saute pan in 1-ounce canola oil. Brown the carrots, celery, onion, garlic in the remaining oil. Arrange these ingredients tightly in a 4 quart stock pot. Add water so it just covers the ingredients, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, skim any foam fat or impurities with a ladle as they rise to the surface. After 10 minutes add bay and thyme. Simmer 15 minutes and add the potatoes. Simmer another 20 minutes until potatoes and chicken are just done. Remove vegetables, chicken and potatoes and arrange attractively on a platter. Strain broth.
- Poach chicken:
- Pat chicken dry and sprinkle inside and out with salt and pepper. Stuff cavity with thyme and chill chicken, loosely covered, at least 3 hours (to allow seasoning to permeate meat).
- Transfer chicken to a 7- to 8-quart heavy pot, then add stock, water, onion, garlic, celery rib, and bay leaf and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and gently simmer chicken, covered, until juices run clear when a thigh is pierced with a skewer and thermometer inserted into thickest part of a thigh (do not touch bone) registers 170°F, about 45 minutes. Transfer chicken to a large platter and let stand, loosely covered with foil, 20 minutes. Reserve cooking liquid in pot, uncovered, and discard onion, celery, garlic, and bay leaf.
- Prepare leeks and potatoes while chicken cooks:
- Starting about 1/2 inch from root end, make a lengthwise cut through middle of each leek (keep leek intact). Wash leeks well under cold running water and drain. Halve potatoes.
- Cook vegetables while chicken stands:
- Bring chicken cooking liquid to a boil, then add leeks, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, and celery root and simmer, partially covered, until tender, about 20 minutes. Carefully transfer vegetables with a slotted spoon to platter with chicken and keep warm, loosely covered with foil. (Reserve cooking liquid for another use if desired cool, uncovered, then chill, covered.)
- Make sauce while vegetables cook:
- Mash garlic and capers to a paste with salt using a mortar and pestle (or mince and mash with a large heavy knife). Transfer to a food processor and pulse with parsley and watercress until herbs are finely chopped. With motor running, add oil in a slow stream and process until smooth. Season sauce with salt and pepper.
- Serve chicken and vegetables with sauce.

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Wash the fingerling potatoes, pat dry, and season with olive oil spray and half of the salt, pepper, and fresh herbs. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes or until soft to the touch.
- Slice the zucchini in thirds crosswise; slice each piece into quarters lengthwise. For a classic French presentation, round the angled sides to form 12 oval sticks
- Season the chicken with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and 1 teaspoon herbs. Heat a saute pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Sear the chicken breasts on 1 side for about 2 minutes and turn over. Add the leeks, carrots, mushrooms, zucchini, and garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute to sear the vegetables. Add the white wine, and boil until the wine is reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Stir in the stock and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the Swiss chard to 1 side of the pan to braise the greens in the cooking liquid, about 1 minute.
- To serve: Place 1/2 cup of the Swiss chard in the center of 4 large soup bowls. Slice each chicken breast on an angle into 5 pieces. Arrange the chicken on top of the Swiss chard. Divide the vegetables among the 4 bowls and ladle the broth around the vegetables.

CHICKEN POT AU FEU
This is an old French Canadian recipe. My mother used to make this and I have been making it for my family.True comfort food. We call it "Bouilli". This same recipe is made using 3 pounds stewing beef that you brown and add to the second part of the meal. No need to make a broth. Make this when all the vegetables are in season.
