This chicken soup recipe is with me all my life. My grandma made it and my mother made it too. When my children were born I brought a tradition of cooking chicken soup to my home. It is very comforting soup that it’s perfect for cold winter months.

I always use lots of vegetables with my soup, so it’s even more tasty with all the vegetable flavor. I use only salt and pepper for my chicken soup recipe. I omit any extra unnecessary bouillons. Many of them are packed with unhealthy ingredients. I omit them as much as I can.

You need only vegetables, chicken and salt to make a perfect chicken soup. It takes of couple hours but it’s worth it. My children can eat that soup every day. I usually serve with cooked noodles. But it can be also served with any other pasta or even rice. I also, cut the cooked chicken in pieces and I add it to the soup without the skin and bones.

The most important fact is not to boil the chicken soup. Just cook on low or medium heat. And the perfect soup is made. No fancy ingredients. Just real ingredients you need to make it.
