This came in my email through Gourmet-recipes-from-around-the-World. Chicken soup is one my favorite soups. I will use leftover roasted chicken when I make this recipe - it's too easy to roast 2 or 3 at a time - more economical & everyone eats their favorite - the rest of the carcasses go into the soup pot! Use a cheese cloth bag (2 or 3 layers of cheesecloth around the spices) to hold the parsley, thyme, nutmeg, peppercorns & bay leaf. Original author suggested an aluminum foil packet with holes punched in it - that would work too.
