Chicken Soup Recipe

Favorite Real Restaurant Soup Recipe

This restaurant Chicken Soup Recipe is a “main stay” during cold weather and flu season. Since beginning the restaurant, these "Real Restaurant Recipes" have focused on nutrition AND flavor.

This restaurant Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe certainly satisfies both. The restaurant sells gallons and gallons of it.

The restaurant guests tell me it’s the BEST they've ever tasted...
