Cooking with Oils- Chicken Soup

My favorite comfort food is chicken soup. I do not consider myself to be a good cook BUT I love making chicken soup from scratch and it is super delicious.

I think it’s easy, especially because I don’t need to measure most of the ingredients. I add based on feel.

How many carrots do I feel like adding today?

My no measure chicken soup
