Just what it says... really simple and quick. I change amounts as I add them to the pot if I think I need a little more of anything. This is a very forgiving recipe and a great base for additions.

Hi Trixie, what a nice chicken soup this is. I didn't have a tin of chicken so I poached some chicken breast and used that, the stock from that I used as part of my water content, but still added the base stock. It was very good and got the thumbs up from DH so full of flavour, we liked it a lot and will make it again. As you say very forgiving you could change a bit here and there if you like but it was very good as it was. Made for PACspring 2009
