A warm cup of soup on a cold winter’s day is just what we need to fend off winter’s chill. This soup would be easy to make with a store-bought broth, but when the snow has us trapped inside, we can conquer our cabin fever by making a homemade broth, and it makes all the difference. We stumbled upon this recipe a few years back and it quickly became one of our family favorites. It’s the soup we love the make when we’re feeling under the weather, or when we just want a meal that will fill our bellies with goodness.
It all starts with our homemade chicken broth. If you’ve never made your own broth, we can tell you that there’s truly nothing like it that can be found in the store. It’s just so fresh and full of beautiful flavor, you’ll practically want to drink it on its own! Now, we know everyone has their own family recipe when it comes to a scratch-made broth, but fundamentally speaking you need the same ingredients: chicken meat, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and fresh herbs.
