Recipe Description
If one broth could be called "the mother of all others," then this is it.  Chicken broth, often with dumplings or noodles, is the soup that appears most frequently in both German homes and restaurants.  It has always been a favorite of farmers who find that older, tougher chickens lend themselves nicely to producing more flavorful broths and soups, than do younger birds.  This broth is the starting point for many other soups, sauces and combination dishes.
