I recently created this recipe because I wanted to make a soup that contained all the things that help me alleviate my asthma. I'm not such a fan of chicken soup but this turned out great and now I make it all the time whether I need it or not.

    Add the vegetables and salt to the water and cook until tender.
  • 3
    Return as much of the chopped chicken as you like in your soup to the pot. If you have leftovers save them for another recipe.
