Hello My Hungries,

Today i am sharing with you all this delicious and nourishing hearty chicken soup. This soup recipe actually belongs to my best friends mother in law. I remember i was fortunate enough to try this as it was once made for me when i was unwell.

I had just had my second child and i got very sick. I felt i couldn't eat anything and the cold January weather wasn't helping. So my friend sent me over some soup.

To be honest, back then soup was new to me. It wasn't something i ate as a child apart from dhal and chicken soup was definitely not in any menu i was around.

I remember i forced myself to have this soup. Theres something about enjoying food cooked by others; its just always that extra special. My first bite and i was feeling the healing going on inside. It was everything a sick new mother needed. It was nourishing me from within, with such a gorgeous flavour that even my sick cells were enjoying!!!

Off course once i got better i had to demand for the recipe. And i was delighted to discover that soup making really is so easy and can be delicious too. Double winner! Actually make that triple - because soup is ultra great for weight loss too and thats exactly what i enjoyed to trim back into my pre pregnancy weight.

 

Give this recipe a go, you literally sit back and let itself cook away, its that easy.
