READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Top Review by bmcnichol

We all really enjoyed this. I made this on the stove and used boneless chicken breasts. I used all chicken broth and didn't use tapioca. I also used the dried basil. I didn't put this over noodles but we all really enjoyed this. It cooked up nicely on the stove and I will be making it again.
