COLUMBUS, Ohio (WJW) — The First Lady of Ohio, Fran DeWine, is sharing her homemade chicken noodle soup recipe with fellow Ohioans.

She is encouraging families to spend time together during this period of social distancing.

Fran DeWine says one of the ways she stays connected with her children and grandchildren is by cooking together. Earlier this week she taught two of her grandchildren how to make her grandmother’s chicken and noodles recipe.

Now, she’s sharing it with her fellow Ohioans in hopes that they might spend time together in the kitchen too.
