My DD made this for her Life Skills assignment and I have to say it is very good. I loved the taste of it and it looked easy to make. I will make this again.
Bravo Hey Jude! Thank you for sharing this wonderful soup. Restaurant quality & all made so simply.
Very good soup! I sort of estimated how much chicken I would need, and bought ground chicken. I may have been too enthusiastic, the soup bowls are pretty crowded, but it tastes fine, so that's all right. I finished the soup with a tiny amount of pepper. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
