One day this winter, all four of my kids had the barfs. To make matters worse, I didn’t discover the issue until right before my play practice. So, my poor husband had to take care of everyone by himself. Not something I should talk about before selling you a great recipe, right? Wrong. After they all emptied their stomachs and had a good night’s rest, my kids REALLY appreciated this simple, nourishing soup! I appreciated how fast it was to whip up. Thank goodness it was only a 24 hour bug. They were bouncing off the walls in no time. I hope this recipe is comforting for your home remedies this flu season too. Enjoy!

You may use any cooked chicken you have on hand. I always have cooked rotisserie chicken in freezer bags, so that’s what I use.
