    Queen of Everything's Note:

    I don't know what it is...this soup cures what ails ya. A recipe for Authentic Jewish Penicillin (chicken soup) tweaked by a sympathetic goy. I make a big pot of this when cold & flu season hits and freeze small containers to reheat whenever one of us feels the bug coming on. I pureed this for my baby last winter and he loved it.

      I make a huge batch of this soup every year around Halloween. I freeze it in glass ball jars and add the noodles to it later when it is thawed and cooked. When everyone starts getting those colds and flu bugs this is my go-to. I have given the jars to sick friends and relatives and they all say the same thing, "Thank you so much!" It comforts the soul. I sip it for breakfast, lunch and dinner when I am down. It has helped me bounce back, and as a teacher with two toddlers to take care of, trust me I get every germ on the block and then I have to turn around and go to work everyday. So I love this recipe.

      Great flavor and worth the time! I made the stock and froze 2 separate containers with the shredded chicken to make smaller batches! It has been welcome, wholesome food for the cold season! I had never used parnsips before and they add a great spicy note. I also add chopped kale to my fresh batches and just mix it in and let it cook a bit to add some fresh green flavor. A fantastic soup!

      OMG!!! I will never eat soup out of a can again!!! We included all the ingredients (double the garlic) to render the stock. There was a mouth-watering aroma that filled the house as it simmered on the stove. When it came time to make the finished product we only added carrots and celery (more than the recipe calls for). Also, the dill adds originality that most Chicken Noodle Soups lack. It had the best flavor. It was worth every minute that it took! This is going right to the top of our comfort food list!!!
