    VideoJeff's Note:

    The best chicken soup I've ever eaten. This came from "The Frugal Gourmet On Our Immigrant Ancestors" by way of a friend of mine. It's easy to make, although you need to make sure you have all of the spices, and at least for me, they aren't the most common of spices. Having said that, you won't have any problem finding them in the local Safeway.

      I love the combination of spices in this recipe. The turmeric gives the broth a very nice light yellow color, which is very eye appealing. This recipe is the basics for my favorite way to prepare chicken soup. I used cooked chicken in place of the chicken thighs and instead of pepper flakes, I added a can of Ro*Tel tomatoes to give the soup a nice kick. I also added a large cubed potato (steamed in micro wave to soften) and a cup of frozen green peas. Thanks, VideoJeff for this very nice recipe!

      Great dish on a cold Nebraska day. Added the Rotel and used can chicken breast instead. No pepper for the Rotel gave it enough heat. Very quick meal. I thought it was better then the Indian Oven restuarant.

      Great taste!!!<br/><br/>Next time I'll use my homemade stock and I'll cook the chicken in a pan before the veggies for the texture that we're more used to.<br/><br/>Thanks for sharing!
