Nutritional values

Home-cooked chicken soup invigorates the immune system and gives energy. Zinc from chicken meat is involved in the activation of immune processes and promotes wound healing.

You can also easily turn the chicken soup into a vegetable soup by using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and omitting the chicken breast fillet or replacing it with regular or smoked tofu.
