I am sorry, but I thought this soup was terrible. The only reason I gave it one star was because my husband said it was edible. We followed the recipe exactly. I think for me, maybe it is because of the chicken broth being cold and it just tasted terrible. I think maybe this soup also needed a lot more flavor- such as garlic/salt.
