    ~Leslie~'s Note:

    This is a recipe from my Mother in Law who was from a Mennonite family in Manitoba. This soup Is common there, and they just call it simply "Noodle Soup". This will be unlike any other Chicken Noodle you have had. There are healing qualities in the cinnamon and anise, a great elixer for colds/flu. I love it, hope you do too!

      This has to be a prairie soup! Other then using chicken pieces I made as posted. Had no idea that the star anise I had added to my spice collection awhile back could add so much to chicken soup! Would that I could make fine noodles like my grandmother used to make! Great chicken soup! Thank you Leslie and be sure to thank Wayne for sharing this soup recipe that I now have in our family favorites cookbook.

      I have a nasty case of bronchitis right now. This soup is so soothing and has really helped. But you can make it just because it tastes great! No bronchitis required to enjoy! I won't go into how soothing this soup is and talk about disgusting things like how it breaks down mucous and clears stuffy noses... a review should entice you to make it not disgust you! :-) And another great point is... it is so simple even a caveman can do it. I know... because my Neanderthal BF Dugan made it for me. And he can't even flip a fried egg without breaking it. Good soup.
