Easy tasty comfort food. We had a 6" dump of snow so I needed this. I had 2 quarts of chicken stock in the freezer with the chicken already in it so I used that as my base.Otherwise followed the recipe except for the tumeric (I was out of it) Still tasted excellent Mm Thanks Bec for a heart warming lunch
