This soup is so quick and easy and great for busy days. When I don't have cooked chicken on hand, I pick up a rotisserie chicken from the store.

I was pleasantly surprised with how good this soup was. I halved the recipe, used a 10oz can of cooked chicken, and left out the almonds. My two year-old daughter and I enjoyed this for lunch, garnished with a bit of Parmesean cheese.

Hey Jude! This soup was Gooood!! I used 4 cans of Fat Free Chicken Broth (I like really brothy soup) and added 1/4 tsp. Basil, 1/4 tsp. crushed Garlic, 1/4 tsp. ground Ginger, 1 (4 ounce) can of mushrooms and 1 cup of canned Asparagus (drained) as I didn't have any Broccoli. ***This soup turned out to be a such a winner!! The sliced Almonds really gave the soup a Gourmet look and tasted Pretty Good too! I will definitely make this soup again very, very soon! Hey Jude, Thanks!!

Hey Jude, I'm sorry, but I just thought this was OK. I used fresh broccoli & left out the almonds, but basically there wasn't enough liquid - the Ramen noodles really just soaked it up, and even after adding another cup, it was mostly just noodle. I like ramen noodles ok -- and I didn't think this recipe really changed the flavor of ramen noodles. The added broccoli didn't really meld with the flavor for me. It was quick & easy, using leftover chicken, but I'm not likely to prepare this again. Thanks.
