READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chef Buggsy Mate

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!
