    jmelyn's Note:

    This isn't MY dad's chicken soup recipe, it's just what it was called. I think this originally came from Bon Appetit. I have always made it with pasta instead of rice. The thyme in this is what makes it tasty. Prep time does not include cooking the chicken.

      Thyme was what made this great. Many positive comments. Used Rotini pasta. Sliced the carrots and onions thin instead of dicing for more rustic appearance

      I cooked this in my crockpot for eight hours to sell at my daughters field hockey game. Before half time of the Varsity game, it was all gone. The past was a nice twist.

      This was a quick, easy & tasty way to use up leftover chicken - as well as some leftover cooked rice, which I added at the very end! I scaled the recipe in half - but increased the broth to 6 cups. Thanx jmelyn!
