Directions for Skewered Chicken:

The chicken may be broiled or grilled. Pre-soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes before using to keep them from burning under the broiler or on the grill.

Coat chicken pieces with melted butter and roll lightly with flour. Thread onto skewers. If broiling, sauté on the stovetop. Preheat the pan with vegetable oil and a dash of salt to create a non-stick surface. Place skewers onto pan, turning every 2 minutes, and cook until golden brown. If barbequing, pre-heat barbeque on medium heat for 10 minutes. Brush grates with vegetable oil and grill chicken skewers for 4-7 minutes turning half way in between. Brush on butter to increase flavor. Season with salt, rosemary, and white pepper once cooked. Place on top of the bowl of soup to serve.

1 Hr 5 Min

Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in leeks and onions, and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add potato, squash, carrots, apple, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes.

Carefully puree the soup in batches in a blender, or use a stick blender to puree the soup right in the pot. Once the soup has been pureed, return it to the pot and stir in wine and cream. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper; simmer gently for 5 minutes. Ladle into bowls and garnish with chopped chives and a dash of cream. Add Chicken Skewers to top of the bowl for unique presentation.
