  1. Good but nothing extraordinary. Great base to start from. Thanks!
  2. I followed the recipe only adding 6 cloves of minced garlic. I used homemade chicken broth/vegetable broth and I used the "No Yolks" egg noodles. After tasting it I did increase the basil and oregano. This was quick to make and quite comforting for someone who's been sick for what seems like ages. Next time - Read more ...
  3. Vincenza...I could kiss you for this recipe. My 15 month old and I had a bad flu and she refused to eat any soup from the can. I was ill and at my wits end and found this recipe. I had all ingredients in the house (except for celery) and whipped this together. I didn't - Read more ...

  9. Excellent chicken noodle soup recipe. Very easy and has a homemade taste. I did not cook the chicken first. I simmered it in the broth with the vegetables for more flavor.

  10. This is so easy to make and so good! I cook the chicken breasts in the broth to make the broth a bit richer, then build the soup from there.
