Mom's Chicken Soup

Sara Andrea


This recipe has been in my family for generations. I did make a modification with the chicken prep. You can also eliminate the need for chicken broth and make your own broth by getting 2-3 large chicken breast with bone and skin. Use about 8 cups of water, boil the water, onion, cabbage, and chicken. Remove chicken and let cool; then remove skin and bones (discard) and cup up chicken into bite size pieces, return to pot. The rest is the same.
