    I had to make a few changes to accommodate what I needed to use up and what flavors I was looking for because I was really using this recipe as a base to imitate a soup I had at a restaurant last summer. I used 10 cups broth (as another reviewer suggested),I used juice and rind from 2 lemons, canned fire roasted diced tomatoes, and frozen chopped onion instead of chopping an onion. I also left out the corn and added 3 cups of cooked brown rice at the very end. It was amazing! Thanks for getting me off to an awesome start! I will absolutely be making this again with my adjustments.

    This was fantastic! I doubled everything but the chicken to good results. I also subbed lemon pepper for the salt and pepper at the end and added rice like another reviewer. Lucky me gets the leftovers for lunch! Thanks for a great meal!

    Delicious! I added baby carrots and brown rice to stretch out the soup. The lemon broth is great with the wheat-ness of the brown rice. A hearty dish with out a lot of additional calories and fat. Thanks for sharing with us Pebbles.

    This soup is very light and flavorful. It got two thumbs up from both my picky eaters. I froze about half of it in individual containers, and am so glad that I did. My daughter was sick yesterday and she pulled one out and heated it up, said it helped her feel a lot better.
