The weather outside is super frightful, and that means one thing: cold and flu season! One of the best ways to both ward off illness and cure it once it comes is also one of the oldest— and tastiest. We mean chicken noodle soup, of course, and we went in search of the ultimate homemade version. We found it in this video recipe from The Domestic Geek, who shows off a method we’ve never seen before. Watch and see how you can get all the taste and health benefits of this classic dish by cooking it yourself.
