Yum! The recipe extracted a great deal of flavour from the chicken carcass and it had a wonderful aroma during cooking. The chicken broth I was using was quite salty so I cut back on the amount of salt and the only other change I made just to suit what I had on hand was use rice noodles instead of egg noodles. I put those in the pot and cooked along with the soup for the final 15 minutes. It made a great tasting and substantial soup which we really enjoyed along with some crusty buttered rolls.

I've got a sick one at home. Next to Vicks Vabor Rub, this is a wonder drug.

Can't believe I never rated this soup-it's sensational! Have bought many roasted chickens just to make it and everyone raves about how good it is. Getting ready to make a pot for tomorrow and misplaced my recipe. Love it! Thanks for posting.
