Mmmm very tasty! I enjoyed having this savory dish as it was a meal in one with the veggies incorporated in it. What I like most especially is the taste of the chicken soup with all the healthy veggies in it and the chicken's soft and very good. I followed the recipe as is using apple cider except that I served it with barley instead of potatoes. Thanks for sharing this, Michelle. Made for PRMR.
