    • 3 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 2 cups large diced onion
    • 1 cup large-diced celery
    • 2 cups large-diced carrots
    • 4 cups large-diced potatoes
    • 2 cups large-diced turnips
    • 1 quart chicken broth
    • 2 quarts cold water
    • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
    • 5 tablespoons cold water mixed with 5 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1 to 2 tablespoons kosher salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

    In a large soup pot, mix together the chicken, onion, celery, carrots, potatoes, turnips, chicken broth, water, and thyme and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer – the soup will barely be bubbling – for 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
    Before serving, add the cornstarch mixture, while stirring the soup, until the soup thickens. Season with brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper and pour over large toasted croutons. Serves 6 to 8.
