Excellent! My sons just love soup any time of the year and they raved about this one. It really filled them up. It has great flavor! Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
Yum! We all have been having either a winter cough, sore throat or just getting over gastro problems in my household and this soup was just what we needed. I made your recipe in the crockpot so I changed a few of the steps. I used chicken liquid stock and powdered stock instead of water because I wasn't using on the bone chicken. I used chicken breast and cut it into bite size pieces. I think the soup would have been heaps better if I did use the roasted chicken on the bones but I didn't have any at home and I wanted to try your recipe. I filled the crockpot with 2/3 of the stock and added the chicken then cooked it for one and half hours on high. Then I added the vegetables and all the spices and cooked it for another 30 minutes. Lastly I added the pasta and had it cooking for 20 minutes, I had to use macaroni pasta as I couldn't find star shape ones in my region. However the star shape one would have been more fun for Little Miss (DD). Served the soup with yummy parmesan cheese and crusty bread. It was delicious dinner, Thank you Mommy Diva - *Made for Zaar World Tour 4* Crockpot challenge
This is a wonderfully flavored soup. I followed the directions exact, except I used orzo and added more chicken broth, personal preference. Thanks for sharing, I'll make this again. (Made for Bevy Tag Comfort Food)
This was really a NICE recipe, smelled SO good while it was cooking, and was a COMFORT on a cool fall day here in west-central Wisconsin. I skipped the wine (used water), also the cajun seasoning (we're wusses, added a half-pinch of red pepper), the steak sauce (dash of soy sauce instead!)....and I used slightly un-al dente orzo on your advice that it continues to swell a bit after being added to the soup---PERFECT!
