The Cold and Flu Remedy: Homemade Chicken Broth Recipe

This is a quick post to share my homemade chicken broth recipe. If you have littles at home this is a great remedy for tummy aches and sniffles. If you’re just taking care of yourself it’s a quick way to swerve the nasty bugs that swirl around this time of year. There’s something comforting about a cup of soup when you’re feeling a little under the weather, and knowing it’s homemade makes it that much better. Follow the simple instructions below, it’s so easy you’ll laugh, and never forget it!


2 chicken stock cubes 

4 cups water 

1 cup of your favourite small pasta (sometimes I just break the spaghetti up into little pieces)


In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to a boil

Once boiling, add chicken stock cubes and stir until disolved 

Drop noodles and stir to prevent sticking

Allow noodles to soften, stirring frequently

Once soft, serve immediately

*Note: recipe does not call for salt as chicken stock has enough, but pepper to taste if you wish


For egg-drop soup, crack one medium sized egg and beat vigorously 

Once noodles soften, add egg to boiling water, stir softly 

Egg will harden over water, serve immediately 

Voila! There you have it, the easiest homemade chicken broth ever! Enjoy with your favourite sandwich or as a stand alone meal. Stay brave against cold and flu season, and treat yourself to this easy recipe when feeling under the weather!
