This past weekend I came down with head cold. Booo! And what better remedy for a cold than chicken soup? Last night I headed to the grocery store to buy some, but all I could think about was the BEST chicken broth I have ever eaten. It was served to me in a hut in Sahanintsina, Madagascar. When you are a guest in someone's house in Madagascar you are presented with either a rice and chicken feast, or a shot of local moonshine.
But now that I have a head cold, all I can think about is that delicious broth. So trolling the soup aisle last night wasn't cutting it. So instead, I decided to attempt my own homemade chicken soup. First I went over to the deli counter to get the fresh roasted chicken. I picked up some baby carrots, chicken broth, and egg noodles. I put them all in my dutch oven and let it simmer for 2 hours. Oh, and I added garlic salt, pepper, basil, oregano, pretty much every spice in my cabinet.
