Chicken soup is a timeless classic that has been enjoyed by generations. Known for its comforting and soothing properties, it’s no wonder that this soup is often referred to as “Penicillin”, in some cultures. This comforting soup is made with a simple base of healthy vegetables and chicken, simmered to perfection in a rich broth, making it a perfect meal for any time of the year.

The key to making the very best soup from scratch is to start with a good quality broth. You can either use homemade chicken broth or store-bought broth, but make sure that it is flavorful and rich. The broth is the foundation of the soup, and it sets the tone for the overall flavor. Don’t skimp here!!

This is the best Soup Recipe to make when you’re craving simple comfort food or feeling under the weather. Made with bone-in whole chicken simmered into a flavorful broth, this noodle-free version is wholesome, delicious, and filled with zero processed carbohydrates.

This classic soup is my all-time favorite soup recipe. Nearly every country has its own version of soul warming soup. As such, each version will look and taste a little different from the next. The most common vegetables, however, include a mixture of onion, celery, and carrots or what the French call mirepoix. This recipe uses celery, sweet potatoes and peas. Use what you got!
