My son loves my home made soups and the day he was arriving for a visit recently, I came up with this one. Wow! Beats any other chicken soup I've ever made and was a real hit. Very low fat too! You can substitute cream of chicken soup. At the time I had about 3/4 cup of freeze dried veggies that I added but store no longer carries them. To keep cooked chicken from getting too stringy, don't add till the end. I also add a tablespoon of Penzy's Garden Seasoning mix, if I have it on hand. Wonderful for extra flavor.
