Chicken Soup Recipes Part 1

Categories: ,   

We’re sure that you’ll agree there is nothing more comforting than a tasty warm soup during winter! As far as we’re concerned, when the temperature drops it’s time to pull out some chicken soup recipes. Chicken soup has got to be one of our favourites, as the chicken helps to fill you up and it’s also extremely great to freeze for left over lunches or dinners.  We have lots of chicken soup recipes that we just love but this one is our absolute favourite so we thought we’d share it with you on this cold winter’s day. Just note that this chicken soup recipe is slightly spicy, so if you don’t like chilli it’s probably best to leave it out.
