There is just few steps from chicken soup to Krupnik. If you are cooking broth – you can change your mind almost anytime, add barley and potatoes and here it is- Krupnik – chicken soup with barley:). It is ‘all in one’ kind of soup, nutritious, hearty, warming and healthy. If you add millet instead of barley – it would be great for colds, as millet is helping to dry the flegme;)

  • 3 – 4 medium potatoes
  • 5 – 6 chicken wings

  • 4 balls allspice (seeds of allspice)
