There is something so comforting about Chicken Soup. It’s a complete meal in a bowl, soothing to a sore tummy, cozy on a rainy day and very easy to digest.
Traditionally eaten at dinner or lunch, it also makes for a great breakfast, when you’re transitioning away from eating sugary cereals or other processed breakfast foods, because it’s simplicity and mellowness make it easy to tolerate.
The way I like to make mine, does take some time (prepare it over an afternoon that you’ll be at home and able to attend to it). This long, slow cook process, means that it is full of minerals, collagen and more amino acids with all their anti-inflammatory benefits and gut healing properties.
