If you’re ever feeling under the weather, then this soup will help revive you. The age old saying of eating chicken soup while you’re sick, actually does have medicinal properties, especially if made with bone-in chicken. I just started learning about the health benefits of drinking bone broth, and I highly recommend you research them as well. My family has been plagued with allergies this past week, and Caldo de Pollo is just what we needed to feel better. I promise it’s that good!
The recipe is from my mother in law, and I love how easy it is to whip up together if you’re in a pinch. Sunday night we were feeling sluggish and congested. Also we didn’t eat very healthy over the weekend and I know this contributes to how we all feel too. I didn’t have anything planned for dinner but knew my family needed something to help pick us back up. I asked my husband if he wanted Caldo de Pollo, and he said that would be perfect. After I went grocery shopping, the soup was ready in about 30 minutes. To make the soup faster, I recommend buying bone in chicken that has already been butchered. I ended up buying a whole chicken and separating it myself, which does take a few extra minutes. However I was able to make bone broth with the leftover carcass. Again, so many benefits to drinking this stuff!
Enjoy this soup when you’re feeling under the weather, or just need a bowl of comfort. Enjoy!
