Chicken soup, the favorite soup for most folks is a soup made from chicken, simmered in water, usually with various other ingredients. The classic chicken soup consists of a clear broth, often with pieces of chicken or vegetables; common additions are pasta, dumplings, or grains such as rice and barley. Chicken soup has acquired the reputation of a folk remedy for colds and influenza, and in many countries is considered a comfort food. But we have an Asian style that uses fresh squeezed orange juice to add a bright flavor to the standard fare. We think this will be a new family favorite.
