Check out what our friends from Delish have to say about this recipe:

“Spoiler: Chicken soup is way more comforting when it doesn’t come out of a can.”

Well, if my Grandma is still here and you’ll ask her, she would agree with you without hesitation. She used the freshest ingredients and never wanted to eat anything out of the can. While the ones on cans aren’t really “fake soup”, there’s nothing better than the one you cooked at home.

I know you agree with me.
