      This soup is awesome!!! I made a huge pot of it and invited the neighborhood over after Trick or Treating. Everyone (yes even the kids) raved about it for days afterward! The only thing I did differently was I made my own stock and used spinach. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!

      Wonderful soup! The only change I made was using a whole chicken instead of 4 chicken breast. My family loved it and I will definitley make again! Made for PAC - Fall 2008.
