Delicious. I saute'd onion, one carrot, one large celery & 3 cloves of minced garlic in olive oil. Then added 8 cups of water and 2 chicken thighs because broth has sodium and we can't use it. I also added 1/4 cup of barley [instedad of rice] and 1/2 cup of yellow split peas because we need the fiber. Everything else we did as instructed and it was yummy! Thank you!

What a great soup and low-fat! I used turkey breast and that's about the only change I made. I'll be making this again and again, and without guilt if I feel like seconds!!

This soup really hit the spot on this cold/windy day. I made it exactly as written. Wonderful flavor that is sure to please everyone. Thanks for sharing, Molly53, I look forward to making it again.

Wonderful soup! I sauteed the onions and cabbage in olive oil and also the chicken.

If you think cabbage only belongs in a beef soup, oh how wrong you are! Both the DH and I loved this -- a comparatively plebian soup elevated to sophistication by the judicious addition of lemon slices (I upped that a little), parsley (ditto), white pepper, and a pinch of cayenne. Definitely goes into the soup rotation!

WOW!! This recipe is fantastic! The only changes I made was I sauteed the onion and cabbage in olive oil before adding it to the soup. I did not boil the cabbage because the flavors are lost. I added carrots and celery as well. I am going to make this very often. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious! I used only 1 tsp of cornstarch and tofu instead of chicken and it was just fine.

Excellent. As others have done, I also added carrot strips and celery saute'd with the onion in a little oil. Then added the broth. I cooked 2 very small chicken breast in the broth to give it a little richer flavor. The seasoning was perfect but I left out the parsley because I didn't have any. Full of flavor and so easy to make. Thanks Molly. Made this for Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Event October 09

This is a light soup. It has a good taste. I made as written with the exception of the basmati rice. Couldnt find that type of rice, so I used brown rice. Thanks for posting.

We enjoyed this very much. I modified the recipe slightly by using raw chicken that I cooked in a skillet first, and lemon juice instead of the lemons. It turned out wonderfully. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
