I enjoy a soup with a bold, flavorful broth. This broth of this soup is a combination of chicken stock and green tea which is really quite lovely. A dash of hot sauce really gives it some zing.
When you’re not feeling well you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This soup comes together fairly quickly, and there are some simple shortcuts you can take to make it even easier. I often use a rotisserie chicken when making chicken noodle soup, and I buy some of my veggies like onion and celery already diced from the produce department. I’m all about keeping it simple.
