This is a very tasty soup and it's simple to make. You can either used canned chicken, rotisserie chicken or if you roasted a large hen the night before and have leftovers you don't know what to do with I suggest you give this soup a try.

Very nice soup! The tomato sauce and tomatoes in their juices give the broth base a very rich tomato flavor. I used some leftover chicken, which made it very quick and easy to prepare. Thanks for sharing!

Very yummy soup. I had some leftover chicken and was pleasantly surprised to stumble on this recipe. I did cut it in half and it made a good 4 servings. I really like it when I have all the ingredients available and the cooking is quick and easy. We had a nice warm and tasty dinner. I just served it with some nice bread and butter. And dinner was on the table. Thanks for posting.
