I was given this recipe a few years back from my mom. This soup claims to cure a cold. I believe it! I felt awful and this soup is the only thing that made me feel better and the next day I was nearly 100%!!!
Cure a Cold Chicken Soup:
1-whole fryer with skin on(I used organic)
1-turnip peeled and diced
1-cup cooked brussel sprouts
1-cup green beans stems removed
4-large red bell peppers cored and diced
3-stalks of celery diced
2-cups baby carrots
1-cup of parsley minced
1-hand full of fresh oregano leaves(they have to be fresh as dried doesn’t have the same effect on your cold).
2-teaspoons Hungarian paprika
2-large yellow onions diced
18-cloves of garlic minced(I used two heads).
Optional: baby red potatoes diced with skins on
-Wash chicken thoroughly
-In a large stock pot place chicken fill pot with enough water to cover.
-Boil for 1/2 hour skim off fat or foam
-Add all spices and cook over reduced heat for 1/2 hour
-Add all veggies and cook for 1-2 hours
What do you do when you have a cold? Any home remedies?
Hubby now has the cold. So I am making another pot of soup today 🙂
