Chicken soup: Chicken thighs, water, add 1 WHOLE BUNCH of dill washed with the root and one WHOLE bunch of parsley with the root, WASHED WELL!!!. Tie 'em up together. Add a peeled chopped parsnip and a peeled chopped turnip, 1 whole onion, a bag of baby carrots, 1 tbsp of salt boil for about an hour or 2, take out the herbs, I like it with Matzoh Balls or egg noodles or fideo noodles.

    Was feeling blah and cold yesterday and went to the drive-thru at Chick-Fil-A and got a bowl of their chicken noodle soup. Ate it at my desk for lunch and it was wonderful. Thick and full of noodles, carrots, and the chicken tasted very fresh. I will definitely eat it again.

I pour out most of the liquid from the Lipton's and add the garlic, ginger and scallions. Salubrious! And no one will come near you, so you won't feel bad about spreading the cold.

      I use the Liptons as a base for my chicken vegetable soup all the time...Can't beat the price and its pretty decent tasting...

        I've tried most of 'em, including home made chicken (Mimi Sheraton's recipe) and Portuguese Kale. All have their comfort merits, but for a cold, Meowzart is right. Gotta get that Hot and Sour down at the first sign of congestion.

          Having some right now....tongue is already tingling.


          Agreed, I love hot and sour soup, and will have to try it as Chinese penicillin sometime.

          If you live in the Southwest, posole (pork, white hominy, usually red chile) and green chile stew (beef pork or chicken, green chile, potatoes, and tomatoes) are also good for what ails you.
