    This was good but for us it had too much thyme in it. Next time I would cut the thyme in half. I also added some cheddar to the soup to add more thickness and flavor.

    This is a good soup that (in my opinion) needs to be just a bit richer. I added about 1 1/2 tbsp of butter and a 1/2 cup of sharp cheddar to get it how I liked it. The whole family really enjoyed it, and I'll definitely be making it again with those substitutions. It's a great way to use up leftovers. Thanks!

    This soup is wonderful. It freezes beautifully (left out the milk until serving day). My children even asked for seconds. Very flavorful!

    I prepared this soup differently, but it was still wonderful! I was a bit pushed for time, so I brought the broth & water to the boil, added frozen chicken tenderloins, and simmered, together with the seasonings & vegetables, until the chicken was tender. I then removed the chicken, and when it had cooled slightly, I shredded it and placed it back in the pot. I skipped step 2 altogether, but did add about a tablespoon of olive oil to the soup, as well as a culinary thickener. I then added the milk and rice, and simmered until the vegetables & rice were tender. We all enjoyed this soup, and I will definitely be making it again. Thanks!
