We loved this soup. A really easy recipe. I did add 1 t onion powder, but that's the only thing I did different. It is very flavorful, and a great big bowl of this would warm anyone up! I will make it again. Thanks RecipeNut, great recipe!!

Great soup, Recipenut! And sooooo easy. My bunch ate the first batch the day I made it, and daughter wanted more, so I made another larger pot the next day. I had bone-in thighs, so I cooked them in the water, then took the meat off the bones. It takes longer, but I like dark meat better than white. The only thing I did differently was to add two chopped carrots and a small bay leaf, and I used noodle-O's. I've always made chicken noodle soup starting with a whole chicken, boil it, strain it, etc...turns into a whole day project. I love the fact that this is so fast and good.

Delicious! I made this for my husband when he was sick & he ate it all! The only difference was that I didn't have egg noodles, so I used bowties. Also, I didn't have any fresh parsley so I added a little dried parsley in with the salt & pepper. I'll definitely be making again when any of us are feeling under the weather!
