Delicious and a recipe that I know we'll be enjoying often. Having already made - and greatly enjoyed - breezermom's Recipe #328649 and Recipe #328668, I really just had to try this recipe. Naturally, I made this with Recipe #328649! :) Wonderfully flavoursome and very much a complete and very satisfying meal. I made only a few variations. As an incorrigible garlic-lover and mushroom-lover, I added 4 cloves of minced garlic, 2 cups of sliced mushrooms and some thyme. I also used unsalted butter instead of the margarine which I very much prefer in cooking. Thank you so much for a trio of super chicken stock/soup recipes, breezermom! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
