This world best chicken soup recipe was inspired by my mother-in-law, Anna. Everybody calls her Nanny.
In the Chinese culture, if you are sick, you must stay away from
chicken. When anybody in my husband’s family is
sick, including myself, Nanny always makes chicken soup which is the best
medicine ever. I revised this recipe several times after her moving down south. I always save 2-3 containers in the freezer. When you need it urgently, you can just heat it up in the microwave oven.
In my opinion, the most important ingredient of this recipe is LOVE.
Prep Time: 20 Minutes Cook Time: 90 Minutes Serving: 4-6
4 – 4 ½ pounds (Bone-in) Chicken Leg Quarters and/or Thighs (discard the skin)
2 pounds Baby Carrots
6-8 stalks Celery (diced)
2 Bay Leaves
1 tablespoon Onion Powder
1 teaspoon Turmeric (I use Spice Islands brand)
1/2 - 1 teaspoon Ginger Powder (optional; ginger has a great healing power. I added this ingredient lately. It works very well and married to other flavors perfectly.)

Feel free to serve egg noodles or crusty bread on the side
When dark meat is on sales, this soup only costs for $10. So, stock it up.
