Take a step back to your childhood with my yummy Homemade Chicken & Stars Soup recipe. It’s the perfect “warm me up” meal for a cold, winter night.
There is nothing better to feed a little one when they are sick than a good, old fashioned bowl of Homemade Chicken and Stars Soup!
And why bother to buy the nasty canned soup when it’s so easy to make your own?
Believe it or not, you can have a fresh bowl of homemade soup on the table in less than an hour. Using only ingredients that you know are safe and healthy for your family.
Plus you can mix and match your favorite vegetables or even add other kinds of meat if you want to switch it up a little bit. It’s so easy!
And if you don’t have any star shaped pasta – use whatever kind you do have available. Rings, wagon wheels or even alphabet noodles all work just as well!
