"We loved this soup. A really easy recipe. I did add 1 t onion powder, but that's the only thing I did different. It is very flavorful, and a great big bowl of this would warm anyone up! I will make it again. Thanks RecipeNut, great recipe!!"
"Great soup, Recipenut! And sooooo easy. My bunch ate the first batch the day I made it, and daughter wanted more, so I made another larger pot the next day. I had bone-in thighs, so I cooked them in the water, then took the meat off the bones. It takes longer, but I like dark meat better than white. The only thing I did differently was to add two chopped carrots and a small bay leaf, and I used noodle-O's. I've always made chicken noodle soup starting with a whole chicken, boil it, strain it, etc...turns into a whole day project. I love the fact that this is so fast and good."
"Delicious! I made this for my husband when he was sick & he ate it all! The only difference was that I didn't have egg noodles, so I used bowties. Also, I didn't have any fresh parsley so I added a little dried parsley in with the salt & pepper. I'll definitely be making again when any of us are feeling under the weather!"
"I do WW and this recipe is great. Only 2 points a serving. Buying the ww progresso soups was getting expensive and now I have a much cheaper and better tasting alternative. I did add some carrots and used the fat free egg noodles. Will definitely make again!"
"Thanks! Very easy. I'm sick today, so making it again. I am (as I did before) adding carrots and onions along with the celery. I also use the low sodium broth. Yum!"
"My mom was feeling under the weather so I made this soup for her. Very simple and easy but also delicious. I doubled the amount of meat because she needed the protein. Chicken soup is about the only thing I feel like eating when I don't feel well and now I have an great homemade recipe for it. thanks."
"Very nice. For additional flavor may I suggest simmering 2 sliced/chopped carrots, maybe a Bay Leaf and/or a pinch of dried tarragon along with the chopped celery or other herb(s) of choice. If your preference might be a cremed soup; thicken with a roux as desired."
"Wow!Thank you so much for posting this soup. It is absolutely delicious. It is so easy to make. The only thing different I did was add some cooked left over rice. I will be definately be making this again."
"This is a wonderful soup recipe. I made it exactly as shown the first time and knew I would be using it over & over again. I love to add carrotts and increase the chicken and noodles. What is so great about this recipe : its good as is but makes a great base that you can adjust to your own personal tastes."
"I printed this recipe for my husband to make for me when I was sick. He said it was really simple to make, and the only difference he made was to throw in an onion. It was great! Thanks for the recipe!"
"This is a great soup. My son is sick today so I whipped it up and he loved it. He even had 2 helpings. I did add about 1/2 cup of cut up carrots and 1/4 cup of chopped up purple onion. "
