This simple soup is on everyone’s favorite comfort food list. Some scientific evidence concludes that certain chicken soup recipes might actually help fight colds. Regardless, there is something about warm chicken noodle soup that seems to make you feel better when you’re under the weather; but don’t limit this quick soup to only when you or your kids are sick—it’s great anytime. Add more vegetables for extra nutrients if desired.
