      This was pretty good. Next time, I think I would use only two cups of chicken stock, and a chicken stock made from roasted bones for a deeper flavor. ETA: I increased this by one star because I made it too mild. I put in more of the seasonings today. It also had a chance for the flavors to meld overnight, and it was really good today. I still think I'd put in a little less stock, though.
