Basic Chicken Soup
Chicken soup is the ultimate comfort food. It warms and satisfies, which is why you make it when you're feeling under the weather or chilled to the bone in winter. Our simple recipe has classic flavors and a short ingredient list—and it comes together faster than most versions (you'll have your spoon in a piping hot bowl in just over an hour). It's low-effort, too: All you have to do as the flavors meld together on the stovetop is give your soup the occasional stir.
Roast Spatchcocked Turkey
Want to cook your turkey faster? Try spatchcocking. When the turkey's backbone is removed and the halves are flattened, the meat cooks in just one hour. Since this method doesn't allow for stuffing the bird, simply make a batch of turkey stock to flavor and moisten the stuffing as it bakes beside the meat.
