Shawn said that I should call this chicken and spaetzle soup “awesome soup.” That pretty much sums up everything I have to say about it.
If you could turn the perfect spring rainshower into a meal, this soup would be it — it’s calm, restorative, and in a weird way, beautiful. Loaded up with extra celery, peppery watercress and fresh dill, it’s the perfect soup to curl up with on a chilly, damp spring night. The flavors are familiar, but chewy spaetzle and bright citrus notes from fresh lemon juice make it something special and keep you coming back for more. I typically prefer vegetable-based soups, but when it comes to nursing a spring cold or allergies, it really doesn’t get any better than this.
