Jewish Penicillin....

Ok, well i admit, i love homemade chicken soup. It's far from raw but its something i crave very infrequently so i decided to make this soup with my mom. I figured this would be a good bonding session for us both and it was! I won't repeat the recipe here but its quite simple actually. It's imperative to impart just the right amount of seasoning to the soup. Of course the chicken itself gives off a wonderful flavor into the broth. I cannot believe how simple this soup is to make. I decided to add some cooked noodles to the broth later to make it more of a meal. So, it will be a chicken noodle soup. Anyway, let me impart to you the restorative features of chicken soup.
