Fantastic homemade chicken soup recipe, slightly modified from long-time Houston-area broadcaster, Ron Stone. Feeds a crowd, and delicious with hot buttered cornbread!

This is very good comfort food! I made the broth using chicken with the skins on for more flavor. I also used a combination of breasts and thighs because we love the dark meat in this family. Next time I make this I will add some veggies--maybe some celery and carrots and perhaps peas. My 7 yo DS loved this! Thanks for posting LorenLou!
