Posting this recipe today couldn’t be more appropriate. I’ve been sick for two days and gosh how I wish I could have one bowl of this delicious soup right now! This recipe is comfort food at its best and I’m sure I would feel much better just by eating a few tablespoons! Alas no chicken wings in the fridge and anyway all I can do today is lay in bed and sleep. Bummer.

This chicken soup is loaded with sweet potatoes, carrots and celery but you can basically throw in any vegetable you have on hands. The chicken wings are browned first to add more dimension to this dish and instead of using water, I opted for chicken stock for a super tasty result.
