Not Your Grandma’s Chicken Noodle Soup

The colder weather brings us inside.  There is nothing more hygge than a nice hot bowl of soup to help warm us up. 

 It is said that chicken soup is good for the soul.  Chicken soup is savory, nourishing, and can help you restore when you have been ill.  

With a twist of spice, this is definitely not your grandma's chicken noodle soup!
