Boost your family’s immunity during the cold winter months with these 9 flu-fighting chicken soup recipes.
Chicken soup is my immune boosting go-to dish for winter days when anyone in our household isn’t feeling well. It’s like a medicine bomb that helps soothe the throat, relieve the chest, and clear up any congestion. It’s a brilliant flu-fighting dish for sick kids as it’s packed with nutrients, is simple to swallow, easy to stomach, and feels like a big comforting hug from mum (although I like to give these too).
Whenever I’m unwell, a big bowl of chicken soup is always on the cards – followed closely by Easy Air and On Guard in my oil diffuser, a big snuggly blanket, and a good Netflix series.
It’s also a great dish to freeze, and have on hand for when you aren’t well and don’t feel like cooking. But which chicken soup should you eat? Glad you asked! Here’s my pick of the bunch when it comes to the best tasty immune boosting chicken soup recipes to fend off those winter nasties.
CHICKEN AND NOODLE SOUP – I find this the best bread dipping soup! It’s filled with loads of vegetables including carrot, onion, celery and corn – but you could add in whatever veggies you desired. All the nutrients you need to help improve your health.
