This was a good soup! My whole family enjoyed it, with Poppy and Sesame Seed Rolls -Bread Machine on the side. We used chicken thighs for our meat, I really enjoyed having the dark meat in there. We also used shallots instead of onions (due to onion allergies). We'll likely make this again sometime! Thank you Nif!

Oh boy - we REALLY enjoyed this soup. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs also, but for me there wasn't any difference. The dark meat is so much more flavorful in soup. I skipped the corn, but used all the other veggies. We thought the spice measures were spot on, and not too hot either. I used a Papardelle's pumpkin orzo that I had in the pantry, and it was just the right addition to this soup (at least for us). DH raved over it, DD ate every bite of hers and I had seconds too. Thanks for posting and good luck in the Craze-E Contest. Great recipe!

I thought this soup had a catchy clever name. Nothing was mentioned in the description about it being a gift, however I could see making this for some one who is sick and needs a pick me up. I cut the cumin and the chili powder in half as DH doesn't tolerate spicy foods at all. I think it was just the right amount. I also used boneless skinless chicken thighs. Thanks for submitting such a wonderful soup.

I did not use corn or fresh zuchinni in this recipe. I had one 15 oz.can of zuchinni with tomato sauce and that is what I used. This might not be a review of the true flavor of this soup. But it was very comforting and we enjoyed the taste. I use Sysco Chicken base for making any broth. It has bits of chicken in it and most commercial kitchens use Sysco bases for all of their broths.
I had some boiled chicken dark meat in the freezer that was already cut so I pretended it was
fresh chicken drumsticks and went from there. Some in our family like Orzo and some do not, so I cooked separately and those who wanted added to their Soup. The spices went well together. Since I had the tomato base with the canned zuchini the spices enhanced it. I can tell you that it was very good without the corn. Thanks!
