Chicken and vegetable lentil soup

This is my childhood favorite soup which we prepare during every winter season. Packed with vitamins, minerals and good nutrients it will help to build immunity for kids and keep us healthy and active. One can make it vegetarian also without adding chicken is equally tasty.
