I made this for my DH and DD...as I didn't eat it (not well). So this review is from them. I didn't have any chicken broth...but used organic veggie broth. The smell of it cooking was marvelous! And they said it was wonderful....just needed a wee bit of kick to it. Which they added to there own bowls. I will be making this again during this winter. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.
