Heather’s Chicken Soup

When the weather changes, cold weather makes my family crave Heather’s chicken soup. I also adore curling up under a heavy blanket with a cup of hot tea, especially when it’s raining out. The only things that would make rainy weather better is if we 1) had a working fireplace and 2) had a tin roof over the patio – nothing beats listening to rain on a tin roof.

I came up with this recipe a few years ago, and it was so tasty the family told me to write it down. I hope you like it as much as they do. Don’t forget, if you have a big enough pot, make a double batch that way you have extra to freeze for later! Added bonus, you probably have leftover turkey in the fridge from Thanksgiving very soon. Feel free and sub out the chicken for your leftover turkey.
