Why Is Chicken Soup Healing?
Chicken soup as you will know is a popular dish to eat when your unwell, full of cold or dealing with the flu. Why is this? The answer is simple.
Chicken soup has a lot of nutrition and goodness from vitamins A and C to antioxidants which help boost the immune system. Chicken soup is a warm liquid which hydrates the body and soothes the throat.
Most importantly, chicken contains amino acids called cysteine which helps to thin mucus in the lungs and reduces inflammation associated with cold and flus. Therefore chicken soup is great for providing symptom relief when someone is unwell.
What Vegetables Should I Put In Chicken Soup?
Now that is a question! You can put many different vegetables into chicken soup to boost the vitamins and minerals available in the dish. The most popular vegetables tend to be carrots, onion, celery, pepper. These provide the body with a great source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K.
Some people love to add potatoes, green beans, tomatoes, peas and corn into their chicken soup recipes. All vegetables are good for the body and the best Chicken Soup recipes here on The Inspiration Edit often have these vegetables included.

Chicken Stock Or Chicken Broth for Chicken Soup!

Chicken stock is made from bones and cartilage and contains slightly more collagen than a chicken broth which uses the more meatier parts of the bird. You can buy chicken stock or chicken broth but if you want to make your own Homemade Chicken Broth In the Instant Pot, check out our recipe and learn how to do this! Enjoy!
