Very flavorful, easy, and an excellent way to use up leftover chicken! I personally would not change a thing, although I did let the soup simmer a bit longer to reduce the amount of liquid. I used chicken broth for the liquid, not water or stock. My entire family enjoyed this soup (including 3 teenagers).
