Holy smokes alive, is this one terrific soup/de/la/extraordinaire. And as easy as whistling a tune on a summer day. I had an extra half of a rotisserie chick left over, and this works out to be and amazing taste! I had some corn (frozen) from the summer on the cob, so threw two ears in the broth with chicken and let it cook right along with the sage, rosemary, and thyme. (isn't' there a song like that? :) you need parsley if you are gonna sing the song) I like the fact you have precooked noodles so they don't get overdone. A great taste and wonderful combination for the cold of the winter. Very lovely! Made for *Soups On* Diabetic Forum January 2010
I have to agree - this is one of the best ever chicken noodle soups! I love all the vegetables and herbs in the soup, although I did reduce the amount of thyme and rosemary and omitted the cilantro (for my family's tastes). There was still plenty of flavour. I also added more noodles. Excellent make-again recipe!
This is the perfect soup for my family. I pack it in a thermos for my kids to take to school and it always comes back empty! Thanks so much for a great, straightforward chicken soup!
