Cook's Notes

The chicken and broth can be made up to 3 days in advance. Refrigerate separately in covered containers, then proceed to finish the soup. If making ahead, refrigerate the broth at least overnight to allow the fat to accumulate at the top, then lift off with a spoon before proceeding.

    I have made this several times, and it is amazing. Restorative is absolutely the right word - it's our go-to soup when someone is sick or sad. If one of us has a sore throat, I use 1/8 of a teaspoon of cayenne. And if I'm short on time, I use canned broth and a store-bought rotisserie chicken. I noticed that the directions call for lemon juice, but that is not listed with the ingredients. I'm sure the soup would taste good with it, but I've never missed it.
