Whenever I'd get sick as a girl, my mom would make me (homemade) chicken soup from boney chicken parts. Since the parts had meat, it would turn out as broth and not stock. I often would have no appetite when sick, so sipping the broth was a great way to stay hydrated and also get the much needed nutrients found in the bones. These days, if I feel a cold coming on, I get some chicken parts to make the broth. I've actually got a bunch of organic chicken necks in the freezer for this purpose, since running out for chicken when you feel like crap is not fun. Hope you feel better!
