This is a Basque recipe that makes a great winter meal, though I omit the bread chunks, and go with some nice Sourdough and Butter.

Reduce heat to low. Add in chicken stock. Stir till all ingredients are well combined. Cover, place bay leaves in pot, allowing to simmer for 1 hour. Stir in parsley just before serving. Place in individual serving bowls, and top each with French bread chunks.

This is a quick recipe and a good one. You can also add a meat such as Oysters, or Shrimp, or Clams to it if you wish to give it a bit of extra protien....Jetspray
