I have made this 4 times. It is my new favorite soup! I use 4-5 large chicken breasts. I also add the cumin. The recipe is so easy, now that I have done it a few times I can do w/o looking at the recipe. My favorite part is the fresh toppings, it makes the soup. Great for big get togethers...double recipe and make a bar w/the toppings. YUMMY!!!
