A great way to get more meals from one chicken! A delicious but light broth with great country flavors. Serve in large bowls with fresh crusty rye bread. Any leftovers of this soup can be strained and used as chicken stock.

I agree with MC_MA_OF 3 that it was very bland. The only way I like to make chicken soup IS with a left over chicken carcass. The roasting gives the soup a much better flavor however you really need to add a lot more seasonings including salt which I normally don't cook with but in a soup you do need some. By the way "Mom Of Three" I got a charge out of reading a couple of your reviews. Darn no tomato juice in the house!!!! Read More

This is a handy recipe when you have a leftover chicken carcass but it does need to be livened up. I add chicken boullion poultry seasoning & whatever else I feel like. But a good basic soup. Read More

Unimpressive. I had to add 1/4 cup of Wyler's shakers instant bouillon so that it would have a taste. I also added celery & noodles to make it into "Awesome chicken noodle soup" that is found on this site. It makes a good stock but then why not just call it leftover roast chicken STOCK. Very misleading. Read More

I'm giving this a 4 because I really didn't care for it the first night or the green beans in it either. However this is one of those recipes that gets better as a leftover. I did add a LOT of salt (probably 2 tbsp) to it as I am a salt freak but I still thought it was bland the first night. Hubby and son liked it surprisingly as neither are chicken lovers. I heated it up 3 days later and it was really good. The flavors had really come together. Thanks Nikki I will use this again. Read More

Great use of leftover chicken frames! I used two leftover frames 8-10 cups water added 1 tablespoon of salt with the other additions and subbed peas for beans since that made more sense to me. Mine's not bland at all but that could be because I also added 5 jalapenos that were dying a slow miserable death on my counter. But I'd make this again without the peppers no problem! Read More
