Smoked Chicken Soup

Smoked Chicken SoupSmoked chicken soup has a distinct flavor and is a fulfilling option—anytime of the day. I've also added few chargrilled broccoli florets too to add some veggie goodness. Feel free to make it as rich and creamy as you want. You can make the same soup preparation with smoked lamb too. I've used white wine for this soup. You can substitute it with sherry too. This soup is a bit spicy so make sure to moderate its heat as per your preferences. Do not add broccoli florets in pureed form else it'll alter the primary flavor. It can be relished with your favorite white bread or with corn chips too. Make it fresh and avoid refrigerating. Let's quickly make this delicious and irresistible smoked chicken soup for our loved ones.
