From the Test Kitchen

What could be better than chicken soup on a cold day? Before a long-awaited spring, warm your stomach and your kitchen with this quick and easy chicken noodle soup. The classic “mirepoix” of carrots, celery, and onion is spiced up a bit with the addition of fennel. We then gave it the little extra layer of flavor with a garnish of sweet dill that we know you will love.
