Chicken Soup | Using Rotisserie Chicken

I remember getting this recipe from my mom sitting in a booth at a pizza shop, jotting down the ingredients on some scrap paper. It was my favorite soup she made and had the best comforting effects on a cold night. She did it mostly by feel (and I do a little of the same) […]
