Martha's favorite chicken soup borrows from the same principles used to make a flavorful chicken stock. Aromatic vegetables such as carrots, onions, celery, garlic, and even parsnips give the soup its rich, hearty flavor. Herbs such as parsley, bay leaves, and thyme are fresh, flavorful additions. Seasonings such as peppercorns and salt enhance the natural flavors found in the soup.
