I guess we're relly slow up here! Cut this out of the food section of our paper about 3 weeks ago,and made it last night. Didn't know it'd been here awhile. We all liked it - especially my daughter-she loved that broth! I didn't add the lemon juice but I did add a decent anount of dried thyme leaves,and I think that added a lot to the flavor.Definitely naking it again when autumn comes around again - still waiting for spring! Thanks.

This is a wonderful soup Bev. I followed your directions exactly and I thought it tasted so yummy. Very comforting and I served with salad and homemade rolls. I will make this more often when the weather cools off. Thanks for posting this.

Started to rate it a 4*. But after adding 4 chicken bouillon cubes it was a 5*. HERE's WHY: My stock was made by adding (while boiling the chicken) some wine, chicken, worchestershire, veggies, spices, garlic and a few other things. So afer the first bowl we then added the cubes (mixed with 1/2 cup of water) to the soup pot and it was great! Next time I think we will just use the CANS of broth instead. Anyway, after the cubes it was perfect! (I HAD PROBABLY LEFT SOMETHING OUT OF THE STOCK)

1st time I tried this recipe I had everthing in the house and it was great. 2nd time I was missing the chicken tenders but had frozen chicken breasts stuffed with sun dried tomatoes cheese so I chopped them up in slices and added that. so good I just had to tell you all. This is a very good soup SHARRON FROM CHEF IN THE HOUSE

I found this recipe about a year ago in "Bon Apetit" magazine in their "by request" column for restaraunt recipes. I made it once last winter and remember it was very rich and filling! Perfect fare for a cold winter's night with a loaf of crusty French bread. I love the addition of the snap peas! Thanks for submitting this Bev...I had forgotten how good it was!

Made this for Dahling and myself, both of us were very disappointed! Not much flavor, really bland. Jazzed it up with some additions of veggies, but still would not make it again.

Yummy - this is so delicious. I didn't cook the pasta before adding it - just threw it in let it cook in the soup and it was perfect. DH doesn't like mushrooms so I doubled the snap peas. Great comfort food -thanks for posting Bev!

I am so glad to have found this recipe! I love it at J. Alexander's and have been keeping my eye open for the recipe for a long, long time. Thanks so much! I am positive that it is magnificent, and cannot wait for that first chilly day this autumn to try it!

An excellent soup, Bev, thanks. I made a few additions and omissions with the ingredients; I skipped the mushrooms, lemon juice and snap peas. I used bow tie pasta, and turkey stock from the Thanksgiving turkey bones, and some of the turkey meat too. Next time I'll add a little minced garlic.

Delicious and perfect for the cold day we had here in Michigan. 2 foot drifts in the driveway so I couldn't get out to buy the mushrooms but this soup was great! Next time, and there will be a next time soon, I will certainly have all the ingredients.
