The 12th century physician and philosopher Maimonides, prescribed herbal baths and chicken soup as remedies for the common cold. 800 years later, researchers have confirmed that he was right. Chicken soup has mild antibiotic and decongestant properties. Comforting and healing - it certainly a winter favourite in my household. Please read my note about chicken stock at the bottom.

A word about homemade chicken stock: A great soup usually has the basis of a good stock. Homemade shicken stock would require boiling a whole chicken and some vegetables for a long time, extracting the chicken and vegetable flavours into the broth and then flaking off the tender chicken meat into the broth afterwards. This results in a fabulous chicken soup but takes a long time and flaking the chicken meat off the bones is a bit of a fiddly job. Store bought chicken stocks will have flavour additives unless they specify organic, natural stock.
