Very nice soup. I made half the recipe. I don't tolerate all-purpose flour so I use oats to thicken the soup. I also added 4 cloves of garlic and half a cup of basmati rice. Will possibly try this after Thanksgiving and substitute the chicken for turkey. Great basic recipe to have handy when a really good, quick soup is needed.
