My family really enjoys chicken soups, and they are always eager to try a new recipe. This soup is lower in fat, especially if you use 98% or fat-free stock. Please taste as you prepare, and add any additional seasonings or more of those listed to suit your taste.

A nice change from regular noodle soup. The fennel bulb gives this a nice flavor. I also added a handful of chopped mushrooms that needed using. Will be making this again. Made for Spring 2012 Pick a Chef game.
