Country Chicken Soup

I know that not everyone finds soup inviting in triple degree temperatures.  Many perceive soup as something to enjoy only in the cooler months.  Not me!  I am a soup lover and it invites me to enjoy bowl after bowl, all year long.

I have been making this country chicken soup for many years.  I have no idea where the recipe came from and it never fails me.  This soup is simple, flavorful and delicious.
