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!!
