Easy Chicken soup recipe for cold winter night
I always remember the times when I was young looking my mother preparing soups for supper..especially during winter….fasolada…lentil soup…..fish soup….and chicken soup.
One of the most stupid thoughts that I had seeing my mother cooking a soup is that it takes so much time. Well, that is not the case. Cooking a chicken soup is a one of the most easiest recipes you can have.
The reason why I say that is because you don’t need to have any extra skills or do two things at the same time…the only thing that takes time is cleaning the vegetables. Other than that is a recipe that it’s really straight forward and depends on you how much you want to change it.
The basic ingredients for me that you need to use are… chicken breast (obviously J ) , rice and lemon ! Other than that you can add as many vegetables as you want or have.
So lets try it !
