The soup was easy to make, looked pretty as a picture, tasted great!! It was so smooth and the flavor was good! It is one I would make again with no adjustments.

Wow, does this make a busy bowl of soup! Instead of using broth and already cooked chicken breasts I made a broth using two large chicken legs and thighs. For religious reasons I don't combine dairy with chicken, so I just used more broth. I don't think it detracted from the flavor. My only complaint is that I don't think the leek added enough of a bite to the soup. The next time I make this soup I'll add a chopped onion as well, and a clove or two of garlic. The leek was just too mild. This was a very interesting soup, and that's a compliment in this house. Thanks for entering it into the contest!

I've made and reviewed 40 soups since joining Zaar. Dh's comment after dinner tonight was that this is one of the better soups I've ever made. I agree, it's delcious; not too heavy, not too light, not too spicy, not too mild. The one thing it definitely is, is easy. Great meal.
