Italian Egg Drop Soup

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by DonnaMaria

This soup could not be any easier. My family has been making this for years. My grandmother and mom would always have a pot of chicken stock cooking. I make this with can stock for a quick week night lite fare. This and a salad and you have a meal. If making stock from scratch, add about 2 cups of the cooked chicken to the soup.

I made half the recipe with canned broth. It was ok but I felt it needed something more to make it interesting. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC 2013.
