We already know that chicken soup when you are sick really does help you feel better. Here is my go to chicken soup recipe that I make when someone in our house is sick or a close friend is sick, I bring the ingredients over to get them better (with other immune boosting tricks). Try out my Crock Pot Chicken Soup.
