This recipe appeared in one of our Local Newspapers. However, I made some modifications and added some spices and vegetables. Turned out real good. A nice light soup.

  12. I also went very light on the amount of salt used, so the soup could be somewhat bland, add salt to your taste.

Not what I was looking for, but very nice. Like other reviewers I tossed in a handful of noodles. Reminded me of wonton soup. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent soup. I added some noodles and extra broth to compensate. I loved all the veggies.

The flavor is unbeatable. The only thing I did was I added more carrots, celery and min bow tie noodles. Next time I will leave out the noodles and add cauliflower, I always put cauliflower in my chicken soup. I think that even rice would be yummy in this soup. Thanks for another great recipe next week it will be German potato cheese soup!
