Homemade Chicken Soup

Chicken Soup Recipe

Winter is known for its comfort foods, which we will happily be indulging in next week with Thanksgiving. But this time of year is also know for its more methodical and slower recipes that take time to create as they nourish the mind, body and soul. One of our favorites is a homemade chicken soup.

For this recipe, we made our own broth using wholesome ingredients, like chicken that was naturally flavored with carrots, celery, dill, parsley, and parsnip. The simplicity of this chicken soup recipe has made it an instant favorite for years that we happily make any chance that we get. For this recipe, we didn’t have egg noodles so bowties won out, but other than that we stayed true to the classic, that with the sudden cold over in New York, we are sure that we will be making again very soon.
