Could chicken soup be medicinal because of the plant and herbal ingredients?. Chicken adds nourishment but I propose the healing qualities are due to onions, thyme, bay leaves and pepper.
Chicken Stock (from my kitchen)
½ gallon water (2 quarts)
3 pounds chicken bones (joints - wings, backs)
2 cups chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrot
1 cup chopped celery
1 Tablespoon thyme
½ Tablespoon pepper
2 bay leaves
Run bones under cold water for 5 minutes, drain. Add bones to stock pot with water, bring to gentle simmer. Skim off impurities and fat that rises to the surface. Add mirepoix and herbs. Gently simmer uncovered, replenishing water as needed for 3-4 hours. Strain and cool quickly. Store in refrigerator or freezer.
