Whether this is your first time making turkey soup, or you're a seasoned cook, even grandmom takes kitchen shortcuts sometimes!

A roasting chicken will also work with this recipe.  I buy roasters on sale, and use my crockpot.  Then I de-bone it, and place into freezer bags.

This satisfying comfort food soup also goes nicely with a slice of homemade Dill Bread.
