What could be more comforting than a big pot of homemade soup simmering on the stove top? Nothing in my opinion! Serve this wonderful soup with chunks of homemade bread and you have heaven in a bowl.

Very yummy. I made a quick version, using high quality canned chicken, measuring nothing, and simmering everything simultaneously in the same pot after browning the onions. The herbal flavor really came through.

Lovely soup! I did add 1 cup of frozen vegetables and was happy to have all my fresh herbs ready for the pot. I made it in my slow cooker; this is a keeper.Thanks for posting. I made this for ZWT5. Rita
