Excellent tasting soup. I would highly recommend this soup to anyone who is tired of bland tasting soups!!!! I did add 2 medium sweet potatoes cut into bite size pieces and fresh green beans cut into 1 inch pieces. I also rearranged the order of the cooking instructions so that all prep work was done before starting with step one in the instructions. This cut alot of time from the recipe and eliminated the need to add/remove ingredients from the chicken stock.
