Thick Chunky Homemade Chicken Soup

myvirginkitchen's picture
Although a traditional Chicken Soup recipe uses actual broth, we've taken a different approach here using chicken stock cubes. I really enjoyed this one. Chicken soup has also acquired the reputation of a folk remedy for cold and flu, and in many countries is considered a classic comfort food. Traditionally, chicken soup is prepared using old hens too tough and stringy to be roasted or cooked for a short time. In modern cities these fowl are difficult to come by, and broiler chickens (young chickens suitable for broiling or roasting) are often used to make soup; soup hens or fowl are to be preferred when available.
