This soup is a cherished family favourite, passed from grandparents to parents and now to me.
I hope your find success with it, and your family enjoy it as much as we do.
**If you aren’t making your own stock, ready made chicken stock or the stock cubes work just as well – Use enough cubes to make about 2litres of stock and add the thighs to boil in the stock.
