Chicken Soup

Thanks to Jack Canfield’s book Chicken Soup for the Soul and its thousands of spin-offs, sequels, and imitations, chicken soup has entered mainstream pop culture as a symbol of comfort, security, and positive thinking. Even before that book, chicken soup was known for its soothing qualities, especially among Jews, for whom chicken soup is a pillar of home-cooking. There still are excellent examples of it in old-fashioned delis, where it is an intensely chickeny broth afloat with chicken, carrots, celery, and parsley.
