Let’s face it, the cold and flu season isn’t fun and when it hits my family I alway make a batch of homemade chicken noodle soup. My husband grew up on this and I have been making this soup for many years. He prefers linguine noodles, just like what he grew up with, so you will need both a fork and spoon for this soup. Feel free to customize the soup using your preferred type of noodle. The split chicken is best for making the chicken stock, the nutrients from the bones are key in this cold and flu fighting soup. My toddler loved eating the chicken, which I was happy with considering it was simmering in the nutrient rich stock. Success!
