This soup came in really handy when my hubbie came down with a cold over Xmas. Very tasty..

I looked high and low for a recipe for garlic chicken soup, because I'd heard these were the two best ways to treat a cold. This soup was hearty, delicious, filling, and overall a huge hit with my guests. Don't be afraid of the two bulbs of garlic- it was much more subtle than you might expect, and did not come across as overpowering at all. We didn't have ovenproof bowls, so I just microwaved the soup with cheese on top at the end for about 35 seconds, and that worked fine. Instead of grated Provolone I used circular slices that melted well. To sum it up, a delicious soup that can be the centerpiece of your meal, lunch or dinner.
