RECIPE: Simple Chicken broth and Vegetable Soup


In the midst of this freezing cold weather and in motivation to fight all the horrible bugs around; I have been doing a lot of batch cooking and incorporating as much bone broth into the weekly menu as possible. As a mum, I feel time poor during the week so I like to cook up as much as I can on the weekends when my husband is home. This simple chicken soup is something I like to make and have on hand for myself as a quick lunch. I love it, this recipe makes a lot, its creates its own broth as it cooks, it's tasty and full of all the good stuff! Enjoy.
