This is a very easy chicken soup to make. Fresh chicken cooked in chicken broth with pasta and mixed veggies. A great homemade chicken soup without the hassle of straining your own stock.

For a simple recipe this soup had good flavor. To keep the noodles from getting too mushy I cooked them as directed but then didn't add them to the soup until the very end just to warm them up. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly as written except I halved it. It made a big enough pot for 4 people to have seconds with just a little left over. I used campbell's broth with garlic and herbs and also added the cooked noodles at the end to prevent them from getting mushy! This was easy to make and tasted awesome thanks!!! Read More

I love this recipe - I add the noodles separately and freeze it without them - then I thaw it and add more noodles later. It works great. Read More

I went on and gave the poster a full 5 stars even though I changed some things. I added a can of cream of chicken soup used a can of peas and carrots drained added oregano and basil. I also didnt use bouillon because I cant ever find it in the stores here. Hubby loved it and says keep making it. Thanks!!! Oh I also used a can of chicken instead of a fresh chicken. Read More

I thought this soup was fast and easy. I like the flavor. I personally cut up two extra carrots and added an extra cup of bouillon. I like garlic so I did add definitely to taste for my family and I. Also I love cooking with wine so I had some and I put a splash of white wine in with. Yum. Read More

Simple recipe that is pretty flexible. I didn't have onion powder but I didn't think I needed it since there was already an onion in the soup. I used to slow cooker to cook my chicken and then used the stock in the pot and vegetables made this recipe even easier and the chicken even more tender. Read More

This was pretty good. I cut the recipe in half because I didn't have enough chicken broth and it still made a lot of soup. I left out the chicken bouillon cubes and I increased the amount of onion powder. Read More

Made this last night for dinner I was sick and it hit the spot! I did do a few things different. I had 3 blsl chicken breasts that I rubbed with the seasonings from sticky rotisserie style chicken recipe on this site covered with foil and baked 350 for 1 hr. and I cooked the noodles in the soup the last 20 min. what a great soup will make again. it was easy and yummy. next time I think I might add a little more carrots and celery as I like a hearty soup.
