This is what my grandmother used to make when we were sick. It is a delicious chicken soup that I could eat anytime. Mamaw said the Chicken Tippy Toed in and Tippy Toed Out. Just the perfect amount of flavor and nutrition for when you are feeling under the weather. I dont know how many times she made this for me but it always seemed to make me feel better
