Chicken Soup

Chicken soup isn’t just a great food for the cooler months because it’s warm and hearty.  It can actually keep you well, and when sick, can help you recover faster.

Packed full of anti-viral, cleansing foods like onion and garlic, it’s proven to help folks get over colds and flu more quickly.

You can make this soup as loaded with these illness fighting agents, or as mild as you prefer by adjusting the amount of garlic cloves and onion that you use.  And for an extra punch, I sometimes add 1/2 a teaspoon of cayenne pepper, but this is also optional.

Our family loves this soup served with a big hunk of fresh, warm bread.



  1. That is such a simple recipe, thanks for sharing!!! Can’t wait to try it 🙂

  2. I swear you and I are kindred spirits….we were both thinking soup for our blogs. lol The third soup in my series will be a Chicken Noodle soup…but it’s pretty involved. Yours is much easier! Will definitely give it a try!

    I couldn’t agree more about the healing properties of garlic and onion. We add both to anything we possibly can….so yummy and so good for us!

    How are you feeling these days? How many weeks now? 🙂

  3. Hi, this recipe looks great. I was thinking of making a double or triple bath and freezing it. Do you think it would freeze well?
    Thanks for posting!

    • Absolutely! I haven’t frozen any before, but I have frozen soup, like my vegetable beef stew and it always tastes great! I froze my stew in foil pans once, then reheated them in the oven, and it worked really well. 🙂

  4. I just bought all the ingredients this morning & can’t wait to make it tonight! Thanks so much, just the recipe I was looking for!


  5. Cant wait to try this… I always thought this soup had so many steps but this looks easy. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Can this recipe be adapted for a crock pot?

  7. Maybe a silly question, but is the chicken cooked or raw going into the broth?
