YUM! This was absolutely delicious. My whole family loved it. I used only chicken, because I didn't have any shrimp, and I put a 3rd piece of star anise in because we love the broth really flavorful. Thank you for a great recipe!

This has become one of my family favs. We try to have it at least once a week for lunch and dinner.

We loved this! The only ways we deviated from the recipe were to throw in some chopped baby bok choy, add 8 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of water instead of 10 cups broth (we ran out of broth), and to cook the noodles directly in the broth at the very end of the simmering process. That idea with the noodles probably wasn't the greatest thing we could have done, as the noodles sucked up all the broth pretty quick, but it's still delicious.

Easy and delicious! I sliced my chicken breast before adding it to the stock. This reduced the cooking time. I also added a few pieces of serrano chili for a touch of heat.

Really Nice! Made a half batch, and didn't add the shrimp (because I live with anti-fish eaters). Boys loved it. Also added fresh chopped chilli to the bowl to season, which added a bit of extra kick. Thanks for sharing!

The taste was fantastic! We used left over cooked chicken we had on hand and put it in a couple of minutes before the shrimp. We let our noodles boil, for two minutes and then cooled them off by running water over the strainer, so they would not over cook. Thanks for the recipe!
