    Deb1's Note:

    This is an "honest to goodness Jewish chicken soup" recipe that has been in my family for years. It is guaranteed to cure whatever ails you, and it is delicious on a cold night. You may use some of the boiled chicken for a chicken salad (check my other recipes) or put it all back into the soup. My mother says it's best when made with a kosher chicken, but I've fooled her on that. Enjoy!

      This is very similar to my recipe for chicken soup, but I leave the chicken in until the end. I also leave the onions whole and add celery seeds and dill weed. I also let it simmer for 3-4 hours and serve the soup clear with noodles or kreplach (meat dumplings). Your mother is right, this DOES taste best with kosher chicken! :) Thanks Deb1.
