A family favorite recipe that is very quick, when time is short and leftovers are plenty. This may also be made in a slow cooker. I like to add zucchini, peas, corn or any leftover 'soup friendly' veggie.

My son and his friend are not fond of onions and gave this soup 4 stars. My husband and I both thought it was a wonderful 5 star soup. I did use 1 lb of chicken and added a little more water and hot sauce. I also added some chicken buillion granules. Thanks Kat! Read More

An easy soup to make with great flavor. Perfect for a cold winter night. I used elbow pasta instead of seashells and added 1/2 cup frozen corn it worked out well. This soup would probably freeze well too. Read More

This was so quick and easy to prepare--perfect on a cold winter day! It would easily lend itself to just about any vegetable or bean -- I did add a stalk of chopped celery and I did double the chicken and the pasta--to compensate for the added pasta I added a can of chicken broth. I will definetely be making this again. Thanks! Read More

We loved this soup! I was worried about the amt of dry onion so I only used 1 pkg increased the water to 6c (adding 2 chix bullion cubes) and used only 1 (15oz) can tomatoes. Also I increased the chicken to 1 lb added a chopped celery stalk and a couple extra dashes of hot sauce. Very good very easy & a keeper recipe for my family. Thanks Kat! Read More

This was a good variation to the chicken soup I usually make. I did make a couple changes to the recipe. I did not have boneless chicken so I boiled the chicken in 5 cups of water first and then when it was almost cooked (about 15 minutes) I took it of the bone and cut it. I then added the rest of the ingredients as stated with the exception of the hot sauce (I did not any). Also I only used 1 package of onion soup added about cup of white wine and 1 tsp. Rosemary. Next time I think I will cut the potatoes in small chunks instead of slicing them. Read More

It wasn't bad but it was a little bland for me. However I did use only one package of onion soup mix. The soup mix has a strong flavor to it so I decided to cut out one of the packages. But in doing that I think I cut out too much flavor. Also if making again instead of thinly slicing the potatoes I think I will dice them instead. I also think the pasta should not be added until the last twenty or so minutes of cooking. By the time my potatoes and carrots were tender the pasta was mushy. I added green beans for some more color and I think it was a good addition. Overall not a bad recipe but needs tweaking to improve it. Read More
