Do you need to cook chicken before boiling when making a soup?
This is probably a stupid question, but i am relatively new to cooking and am going to make a chicken soup today to banish my cold! I bought some raw chicken and the recipe does not mention anything about frying/cooking it before boiling. I am guessing you have to fry the chicken (and mushrooms) before… please can someone confirm this?
