Because of dietary restrictions I had to change recipe. I used Chicken base and Water to equal amount of broth and stock. I doubled garlic powder, Thyme, mushrooms and since I like lots of broth I used 2 ounces less egg noodles. I added some of the cut up chicken. An excellent soup I will be making again. I wish I could give it 4 1/2 stars as in my new rating system 5 is saved for exceptional I really want to eat lot more all at once. Be sure and use the Superior Touch chicken base it is far superior to bouillon.
This soup was excellent. I had added fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I simmered the veggies a little longer than just 5 minutes just to have softer carrots. I used the Superior Touch chicken base too. I find it makes for a great flavor. This makes for a lot of soup which I froze for my lunches. And I had about 7 cups of broth leftover that I froze as well to use later on for another recipe. Thanks for your great recipe Wildflour. We will be enjoying this soup very much.
Wonderful soup! And keeps up to the name: TLC! DH was down with a throat infection and fever and he is NOT a soup person but he was very grateful this soup came to his rescue! Ohh I wasn't too sure what chicken base was so used chicken bouillon cubes instead and added in fresh mushrooms. And I cooked the veggies a bit longer so DH would find it easier to swallow but other than that did not change a thing. Even my fussy DD enjoyed it! Thank you, Wildflour, for sharing your wonderful recipe! Definitely will be making it again... and hopefully nobody will be ill then to enjoy it better!
