Rosol or thin chicken soup is a staple of many Polish kitchens and has acquired the reputation of a folk remedy for colds and flus.

Here is how we make Rosol (traditional Polish Chicken Soup) in our household. Different Polish families will vary this recipe somewhat. Some households even make Rosol by using a chicken stock cube and leave out the actual chicken! Many boil a whole chicken instead of using wings. Others use kluski instead of the fine pasta, which we always use. Some add onion. Others yet add ground almonds to their rosół.
