No-Fuss Homemade Chicken Soup

Nothing brings more comfort than the aroma of a well-made chicken soup. And with the winter weather tumbling into cities, now is the perfect time to break out the stockpot, throw in your favorite vegetable varietals and sit back, cozy up with some tea and a blanket, and relax knowing you can step away from this easy meal because it is doing all the work.  And with this next recipe, you will see that it really is that simple.

This soup is a great remedy for anything that ails you…a common cold, stress, or trying to loose a couple of pounds. I make this soup in the beginning of every week .  It is something my husband and I like to always have in the fridge ready to heat up.  You never know what your week will bring, but you can always rely on this to make you feel better. – Amy
