      just need to say that mint is not at all used in portuguese recipes. And the chicken soup there is simply just done with chicken (all the chicken, including skin and liver), pasta (small pastas) and salt. and of course water. just boil all together!

      The outcome was good but I had a little difficulty with the directions. I used homemade chicken stock and rice pasta to be gluten free. I used freshly ground black pepper instead of white. This helped ward off a cold. Made for 1~2~3 Hits - February 2010.
