I wasn't feeling good and wanted some soup. I did make some adjustments with what I had on hand. I used 4 boneless chicken cutlets that I had in the fridge instead of the bone in breasts. I didn't add the potato as I didn't have one nor did I add the frozen peas. I also added a bit more rice as there was just a little bit left in the box, so I dumped that in after adding the 2/3 cup. This was a good soup that hit the spot.

I made this soup this weekend, and I followed the instructions exactly. It's a delicious soup that will become one of my standards. Thanks, Aroostook!
