Michy's Chicken Soup

Chicken soup has always been a nostalgic dish for me. Tonight, with cold & flu season upon us, amid a pandemic, this warm, cozy and soothing staple was so comforting. I love taking care of my family and serving them this family favorite. Everyone has their own chicken soup recipe, and this recipe is my go to. I like to add fresh herbs to enhance the flavor & and help support and improve our immune system. I also like to throw in some tomatoes to give it a little more color and flavor.


This year, I decided to sign up for the The 607 CSA. I am in week twenty-four of twenty-six and have been getting weekly shares from local farmers that consist of mostly vegetables, a dozen eggs and alternating weeks of fresh pastured meats. It's been wonderful to support local farmers while learning new dishes with new vegetables. And what a difference in quality! In their words, "The 607 CSA is multi-farm Community Supported Agriculture project serving the Catskills and NYC."


This chicken soup has The 607 CSA carrots & Stony Creek Farmstead Chicken. The soup was so comforting not only in flavor and aroma, but even more in knowing that we are nourishing our health & fueling out bodies with locally sourced food. A wholesome soup and great for any night of the week, really. You can have this ready to serve in a little under an hour.
