Julie's Chicken and Greens Soup for Sickies

READY IN: 12mins
Recipe by Julesong

This is really, REALLY easy to make when you're feeling under the weather and want homemade soup. You can make the broth as strong or weak as you like (sometimes when you're sick you just don't want it too strong) and the greens in it are ridiculously easy because they're from salad mix.

You are a genius. How can a few simple ingredients be so good? I used swanson chicken broth and added just a little bit of cubed tofu. I really liked the mixed greens-something I wouldn't have ever thought of. I wasn't sick when I made it but I was sick after eating three bowls! I LOVE THIS SOUP!
