I decided this would be a lovely night for yummy chicken soup so I put a pot on the stove. Distractions. Distraction-
s. Distractions. Just realised my yummy soup has gone completely DRY. Is this a complete failure? Can it be rescued by adding water? Or something else? Or is my family going to have to have cheese toasties tonight?

What do you mean by dry? Burned? Have you more stock? Cheese toasties are yum btw lol

Throw some water in stir and heat you might be lucky.

By dry I mean there was no more water in the pot. Just the chicken, celery, carrot and herbs. Thanks for answering. I put water into the pot now, will it recover?

We wait with bated breath, as I said you might be lucky. As long as you don't get too much burnt flavours then it will be fine.

After a taste test (Masterchef style) I have reached the conclusion that it is going to be a cheese toasty night after all with maybe a tin of soup on the side (?). What once had the potential for a yummy tea now tastes burnt and nasty. Oh well, I am sure there will be many more chicken soup nights before winter is over. Lesson learnt. Many thanks for your help awoftam and beaker59 :o)

Ha ha cooking fails are like all fails - they teach us stuff! As I mentioned cheese toasties are yum sprinkle a few herbs on top pull stuff out of the pantry and fridge make a platter dinner of whatever you have - it can be fun.

Such is life :) move on, enjoy the toasties.
