Excellent old fashioned chicken soup. It's a recipe that brings back memories of the way soup use to be made, the best soups, at home. Set aside some time to make this for your family on a cool day. The aroma will welcome everyone and the flavor won't disapoint either. I didn't have the fresh parsley but the rest was made as ask. Made for PAC, Spring '10.
This is AWESOME!!! Thank you so much for sharing!
