The Best Ever Chicken Soup – “Jewish Penicillin”!

Sick Husband

Today, my husband Jordan was diagonsed with Strep Throat. The doctor prescribed an antibiotic. I know he will be feeling better in 24-48 hours.

Skip’s Chicken Soup Recipe

However, I know the Chicken Soup with Dill recipe that was given to me by my friend Skip Weiss’, who is the publisher of award-winning Chicago Health and Caregiving magazines, will enhance his recovery.

“Jewish Penecillian”

For over 50 years, I had always followed my mother’s and/or my mother-in-law’s “Jewish Penicillian” recipes. However, when our family tasked Skip’s chicken soup recipe, it became a family favorite as the Best Ever Chicken Soup “Jewish Penicillian” for holiday and family dinners!

Taste and Texture

The taste is delicious with a hint of sweetness because of the combination of  dill, parsnips, and carrots. The texture is hardy and comforting because the broth and vegetables are pureed and become a lovely pumpkin color. Our grandchildern prefer a traditional chicken soup with matzah balls, so I do not blend all the broth and vegetable when they are dining with us.
