This was delish! I've been sick & really didn't feel much like cooking, but waiting to make this recipe until I felt better seemed to defeat it's purpose. LOL It turns out to be really easy to make and it's about the only thing I have been able to eat a serving of since last week. Not being able to grocery shop required me to improvise slightly. I had chicken tenders in the freezer, carrot shreds and cilantro, so I subbed those for the whole chicken, the chopped carrot and the parsley. Without the whole chicken to flavor the soup, I needed to add about a Tablespoon of chicken base. I think the lime juice was a unique and key addition to this soup & I have no doubt I'll be making it again, well or sick. And in fact, I think the cilantro paired quite well with the lime. I may continue to use that in the future. Thanks so much for sharing your mother's recipe, One Little Deer. Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :) http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
