Great soup! Made this on a cold, rainy day and it really hit the spot! The only thing I changed was I also made some matzo balls to place in the soup. After straining the broth as suggested I added some carrot and onion back in. The chicken was a little done for our taste so I discarded all that rather than reserve some of the meat to put in the soup. That was fine with me. Next time I may add some of the meat into the soup. Thank you so much for a great recipe that warms the heart and soul!
I made a soup just like this but added another onion and a few more pieces of celery and parsnip. Threw in a bay leaf and pepper corns and used 3 tsp. of bouillon but the brand I had. I used the cheesecloth for the first time and I got the clearest soup ever. I did get some fat but not much and I will be able to remove it before serving. Thanks from my heart!
