1 Tablespoon butter and 2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 lbs. chicken/turkey/duck with a few bones (legs and wings)

Brown onion in the butter and oil, add the poultry and brown slightly. Add
the spices and herbs, then stir in the flour until it bubbles, adding more
butter and oil as needed. Pour in the hot water and stock and bring to a
boil. Add the remaining ingredients, except the egg and sherry. Simmer for 2
hours. Remove the legs and wings and pull the meat from the bones and put

When ready to serve, chop the eggs coarsely and stir into the soup. Ladle
