A good chicken soup is deliciously nourishing and good for the soul. It's one of my favourite things to have on a cold day. I usually make a large pot of soup and then freeze portion sizes so it can be popped in the fridge to defrost overnight ready to heat up when I'm tired after the day and just want to be nurtured. Team it with a slice or two of keto bread or a seeded bread, if you're extra hungry. It's a family favourite.
