I do not remember where I got this recipe but I've been making it for years. Sometimes I use rice and sometimes noodles, depending on the mood I'm in... or what I have in the pantry! :) This recipe makes the ultimate chicken broth... so rich and satisfying. Never had anything but sincere compliments on this soup... which, with a hunk of fresh bread, makes a wonderful supper. Number of servings is a guess-timate.
