This traditional Flemish chicken stew recipe is a meal in itself. This dish contains chicken, leeks, onion and celery, which is thickened by cream and egg yolks. It's delicious, easy to make and highly satisfying.
Thank you so much for publishing this recipe – I hadn’t thought of Waterzooi for years, although it was one of my favourites when we were living in Belgium. More in the Ghent style, I added a few carrots, a clove of garlic, a pinch of dried thyme and ca. 1/4 bay leaf in step 2, as well as a few diced potatoes added half way through cooking. It was so good we’re planning a trip back! - 18 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This soup is absolutley delicious. It has such a nice flavor to it. I did add some cubed potato as other suggested - I really think it needs it. Also the only thing I will do differently the second time around, is I will take the meat off the bone and shred or cube it before putting it back in the soup - the whole pieces in the soup were very odd for our family. - 05 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was the best soup I have ever made. Even my four year old gobbled it up! I highly recommend it to everyone! - 04 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
