  1. As others have stated this is on the bland side. I used homemade noodles instead of egg noodles. I used 1.5x the broth. The advice of others here to enhance the flavor should be heeded!
  2. UPDATE: my bf's mom made this soup as a side dish to go with Easter dinner. She omtted the noodles and used dried herbs. The soup tasted much better than I remember (tasted like mine did after sitting for a day)! I made this soup for dinner. It was a cold snowy Chicago night - - Read more ...
  3. I halved the recipe but tripled the chicken broth. The egg noodles called for in this recipe is too much, so I had to add more broth. This needs a lot of seasoning because it doesn't have much flavor.
  4. A little on the bland side, even with the fresh herbs, I had to add more dried to enhance the flavor. An old secret to adding an "earthier" flavor to chicken soup is to stir in about 2 tablespoons of beef bouillon granules. I also added a tablespoon of poultry seasoning.Thanks for sharing.
  5. My daughter has a nasty cold and I made this soup last night for her. It is delicious! Since she doesn't like carrots I substituted peas her favorite and green beans. I think the secret to the great taste is in cooking onions etc. in oil first. We love this soup! Thanks Steve!
  6. I LOVE this soup! I just read it about half an hour ago and it's just about ready but I have already tasted it and can't wait to eat a bowlful! I did not have the fresh herbs on hand so I used about 3/4 t of each dried. So yummy! I've tried similar recipes - Read more ...
  7. you should add less noodles to this recipe
  8. I made this when I was totally sick. Not only was it very easy to prepare but it was SOOO yummy. Through my stuffy nose I could still smell the goodness. I didn't change anything about this recipe. I cut up a rotisserie chicken and added more carrots. Wonderful soup that I will definetly make - Read more ...
