Thought on Chicken Soup

I've never made fried chicken but I do like Popeye's chicken.

So I was wondering about a spicy chicken soup. If I take a couple pieces of spicy fried chicken chop it up including breading and put it into a chicken soup pot you think the flavour will hold or dissipate?

Or do any of you have a better way to go about making this kind of soup?

I'm not sure about the breading.
Personally, I wouldn't use fried chicken in a soup. Or I would take off the breading.
What herbs and spices do you have in your house?
My jambalaya base is chicken stock/broth or buillion.
Uncooked chicken.
Garlic, onion, cayenne pepper, cajun seasoning and a bit of dried celery.

Those are pretty much the popeye's seasoning.
Then I cook until the chicken is done and add everything else I want in the jambalaya.

Interesting thought. There is a Tuscan soup called ribollita (reboiled) that is made from leftover minestrone. They add stale bread the second day, which breaks down during reheating and thickens the soup. So the breading from fried chicken would probably work the same way.

I would have extra seasonings on hand, though. I think the liquid you add to make it a soup would dilute the flavor.

I would read several recipes for Chinese/Asian Hot and Sour Chicken soup then make a similar broth and add the vegetables that I have on hand.

Here is one example to get you started.

Good luck!

I thought shredding it small it may disintegrate for flavour.

Or

Leave as large as possible so the breading can be skimmed out.Possibly just set whole pieces in and shred later.

I thought it may go soggy being thin but croutons, dumplings,... are fairly yummy

Is it a heavy hard coating or a light coating?
I haven't had Popeye's since 1983 and then only once.

This is a nice, spicy chicken soup:

GoNOLA Recipes at Home: Chicken and Sausage Gumbo - GoNOLA.com

If you don't want to buy the spice blends, mix:
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp garlic powder

We use boneless/skinless thighs instead of a cut up, whole chicken.

Spicy chicken soup

I wouldn't bother with the chicken when you are looking for the spice blend. Here's one knock off (from Food.com):

1 (6 ounce) bottle louisiana hot sauce (Louisiana brand)
SEASONING

2 teaspoons fine sea salt
1 1⁄2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon dry buttermilk (SACO)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon white pepper
1⁄2 teaspoon Accent seasoning
1⁄2 teaspoon ground mustard
1⁄2 teaspoon superfine sugar
1⁄4 teaspoon ground cumin
1⁄4 teaspoon ground dill seed (not dill weed)
1⁄4 teaspoon sweet paprika
1⁄4 teaspoon dried chipotle powder

A little experimenting should get the proportions correct for your quantity of soup. IMO, I'd omit the buttermilk. Also a whole bottle of hot sauce may be a little much for my taste. The mixture is intended for frying chicken not soup.

In that case, you can try it.

Oh what kind of chicken soup are you wanting?
