Chicken Soup… What can be said about a soup that seems to have been around since the dawn of time. Mama’s Chicken Soup is wonderfully fragrant with a bright spicy taste. Large veggies with a light creamy texture that is produced by potato and pasta. And of course the star attraction, the Chicken. Roasting the chicken gives this soup a richness in flavor. Add cut Fideo pasta to the mix and you have a complete meal that will have you purring for more… The average chicken soup comes with the usual mountain of salt starting out at 650 mg of sodium and quickly grows from there to well over 2,000 mg’s depending on who is making it…Mama’s Chicken Soup is 324 mg’s and a whole lot of roasted chicken goodness with a kick…
