Rustic Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe
– from the newlywed pilgrimage
Chicken noodle soup really is good for the soul, and the common cold. Take the time to boil the chicken yourself if you can. I believe that the healing properties of this soup are found in the bones and you definitely want to extract that goodness into your broth. What a beautiful, heartwarming, and comforting meal to enjoy all year round!
*I skip the jalapeños myself 😉 yeah, I’m a wimp ~
