From an email:

“Last week I (along with a business partner) launched Prescription Chicken. Our goal is to deliver four homemade soups for whatever may be ailing you/a friend/ a co-worker/ neighbor/ family member/ boyfriend or girlfriend/ stranger/ etc. Whether you’re sick, hungover, stressed, or just plain hungry, we’ve got the cure! Prescription Chicken is offering a traditional Grandma Style chicken soup with matzah balls or egg noodles, a Chickenless (vegetarian) with egg noodles or matzah balls, bone broth, and an amazing hangover soup that comes as a package.

Currently we bring soup directly to your door via UberEats, Door Dash, and Postmates. If you can’t get it from these platforms (out of range, etc), you can email us directly at [email protected] and we can coordinate deliveries and such for you.”

    Is the Chickenless really not made with vegetarian broth? Or am I reading that incorrectly

    • the famous boat

      It is – “Imagine this: tons of veggies meet fresh dill in the most delicious vegetable infused broth. Heavenly, if we may say so ourselves.”

      Cute website!

  • Brooklaur

    I think that that bone broth is being offered as a separate menu item, not that the veggie soup is made with bone broth

    • textdoc

      Yep — I think the idea is (1) a traditional Grandma Style chicken soup with matzah balls or egg noodles; (2) a Chickenless (vegetarian) with egg noodles or matzah balls; (3) bone broth; and (4) an amazing hangover soup that comes as a package.

  • Vegetarian soup is made with veggie broth! promise!!!

    • ColHi

      Please, please add an organic option (or go organic all the way), especially with it being poultry.

      • Taryn Pellicone

        we’re actually all organic! chicken and all! antibiotic free too!

    A business based entirely on an old wives tale. I like it!

  • DCbyDay

    i wish i had seen this before my hungover self ventured out for lunch.

    • Taryn Pellicone

      well good thing we’re around for your next night of drankin…..:)

  • Bon

    Can you offer the hangover soup without the vitamins, etc.? How big are the bowls?

    • Taryn Pellicone

      the actual soup does not have any added vitamins (besides the vitamins you get from carrots and the other veggies). The potion that the package comes with is packed with vitamins- but comes on the side!

  • F ST NE

    Delivery only til 5pm?

    • Taryn Pellicone

      just today! we have extended hours throughout the week (until 8pm)!

    The problem is, the one day a year I’m sick enough to require chicken soup delivery I’m not going to remember this service exists. I hope they plan to do a lot of advertising!

  • LittleBluePenguin

    I make a mean chicken soup and a delish matzah ball soup, but it’s very time consuming – I may have to give these folks a try sometime, especially when I’m pressed for the time it takes to make these kinds of soup!

  • Anon

    And plans to add a gluten free/rice version for those of us with food allergies?

    • It’s definitely on our mind; we have tested GF Matzah Balls but thus far they are not an acceptable substitution.
      We are happy to leave our the noodles or matzah balls (and up the veggies) if you want a GF option! Just leave a note with the order.

  • ECfromDC

    Interesting!

  • Ally

    This is kinda cool. And not just because my husband and I are both sick and I’m a vegetarian. We may be ordering from here really soon.

    • Prescription Chicken

      Hi Ally! Sorry to hear you and your hubby are not feeling well. We’re open til 8 PM tonight, so order some veggie + matzah ball soup right up!
