The images of them over the stove while the smell of the soup wafted through the air stays with us and through the years will always be a reminder of how nice it is to make something from scratch.

There is not a date in history that can be tied to the first actual chicken soup or the first chicken soup recipe but as long as there have been chickens someone must have come up with the idea of boiling the chicken and using the broth. Just about every country in the world has a take on chicken soup and with that many options even the most discerning cook can find at least one of those recipes that catch their fancy. There is no scientific proof of the fact that recipes for homemade chicken soup in any way are the cure for any know sickness but the allure and the belief that chicken soup is a cure for many things is undeniable. It can cure the common cold, it can rid you of chills, and it can soothe an upset stomach and many more cures. These are strictly unproven by medical history but try telling that to your mom or grandmother who would recommend chicken soup for all that ails you.
The beauty of chicken soup is in the simplicity of making it and the abundance in the opportunity of all the different ingredients that can be added. You can put noodles, vegetables, dumplings, tortellini, crackers and well you get the idea.
