If you polled several country grandmas and asked them why chicken soup from years ago tasted better than chicken soup today, they would tell you the chicken was better back then. Used to be, chickens would spend the first two or three years of their life pecking around the barnyard and laying eggs. Once their egg-laying days were over, they were processed for the dinner table.

There is nothing like a home cooked meal of a bowl of soup paired with a nice grilled cheese sandwich.

After simmering the turkey for 90 minutes and picking it free from the bone, I simply followed the instructions on their Chicken Noodle Soup mix. Give it a try. I think you will be as impressed as we were.
