Healthy Homemade Easy Chicken Vegetable Soup Recipe
This is not your basic homemade chicken soup recipe. This is an easy healthy recipe. What’s the difference you ask" After doing some research online and watching various videos, I decided I had to blog about my chicken soup recipe since some of the other recipes were crazy! There was one for boiling the chicken one day, refridgerating it overnight and finishing the soup the next day! Who has time for that" Then there was the recipe using a whole fatty chicken. No way do I want that kind of added fat!
So this is my recipe. It is healthy, easy and delicious chicken soup and it is also easily modified to add your favorite vegetables.
