CHICKEN SOUP…EASY TO MAKE…? by ISABEL

For something that has been made forever..and has so few ingredients…it seems like it would be easy to find many versions of delicious chicken soup…. It is, however, surprisingly hard to find those who make it well, whatever the culture. My current favorite which I have NEVER been able to duplicate…is made by my sister-in-law.  Her’s is an asian version…again with very few ingredients…broth, small pieces of chicken, greens and asian egg noodles. Each thing is perfectly cooked and balanced for maximum flavor… I know she didn’t learn to make this from her mother…because she grew up in a home in Vietnam with servants who did the  cooking….I find it enormously frustrating because we live so far apart and I can’t even come close to duplicating it despite my best efforts…..
