Beginning with my Fast Chicken Soup Base it is easy to knock hours off of the cooking time usually needed for homemade chicken soup and still end up with soup that tastes even better than the 'from scratch' method. With a little creativity you can easily make two varieties of these soul-satisfying meals.

Very easy to make, I purchased a rosemary/garlic roasted chicken and added parsnips instead of peas. My husband and I both have bad colds and it was nice to have a fast homemade soup without all the additives found in canned soups. Read More
