This soup was wonderful! I didn't have leeks and I had to save my two carrots for the soup (see what happens when you don't plan ahead??) but the broth still turned out very flavorful. I let the soup veggies simmer while I cut up the chicken, then tossed in a handful of egg noodles when the chicken went back in. This isn't a quick recipe, but it's very easy and well worth the effort. Thanks for posting!
