Mmmmm good - and filling -- dinner in a bowl! Used a grocery store roasted chicken. Also used a very good quality chicken base. I don't care for a lot of herbs in my soups, so I added just the basil and the red pepper flakes. Put the chicken in just before serving, so it wouldn't get stringy. Served with a couple of shavings of fresh parmesan. The family loved it!!!
