  1. Made this as family all feeling unwell and needed some old fashioned comfort food. This certainly hit the spot with bowls licked clean! Thanks Nanna!

  2. I love this recipe. It makes so much and it takes even better the next day. I add a squeeze of lemon just before serving to freshen it up a little.

  3. This was amazing. I did change up the grated veg and used chopped veg instead that I purchased fresh from the supermarket already chopped up due to time restraints. As I did this I did add an extra cup of stock. The flavour was amazing and will definitely be doing this again.

    My new favourite recipe for chicken soup.
    I love there is nothing wasted. I broke down a whole chicken & froze in portions.
    I used the carcass from my freezer & thighs for a little extra meat.
    I loved the idea of grating the veges.
    I also added some egg noodles in last hour of cooking.
    Comforting & delicious.

    Best Ever Chicken & Veg soup I also used 2 chicken carcasses (removed them and returned the meat to soup)
    It made a large amount and was very tasty…….will be making it again.

    Best Ever Chicken Soup I used 2 chicken carcasses plenty of meat came off to return to soup. I used my bamix to blend it a bit and the soup was economical, very delicious and nutritious. Just what we needed on a cold night. It made atleast 6 servings (I froze half for another lazy day) I can Highly recommend Nanna’s Famous Chicken Soup.
