Excellent! Broth was flavorful and balanced. Good balance of veggies, rice and chicken. As other have mentioned, the liquid volume seemed low once done. I added extra chicken broth and water during the course of the cook time to compensate which worked out fine. This is a total repeat! Will probably double the broth amounts and keep the solids the same for the next go 'round. Read More

We couldn't get enough of the soup. The only change I made was adding about 2 cups of broth but this may not be necessary if you cover the pot so the liquid doesn't steam away. I would say this recipe serves 2-4 adults if eating it as a meal. Read More

This recipe was great. It was simple and it doubled well. The only change I made was to replace the carrots with diced acorn squash. It's what I had in the kitchen and it worked really well. Very yummy! Read More

Loved this. It's the kind of recipe that allows you to play with amounts as long as you have the basics. I added 6-7 cups of broth and increased the beans to a can and also used a bag of frozen brown rice that I microwaved which then allowed me to eat the soup sooner. I went heavier on the sage and added 2 bay leaves. I wanted to take a picture to post but was too hungry. So good on a winter's night. Read More

My daughter and I made this for the first time last night. We loved making it together as it was so simple and fun. It was definitely a hit and we will make it again. All of the flavors married so well together. Our kitchen really smelled good too. krismariev Read More

This soup was so good! All four my kids (and hubby!) asked for numerous servings and even asked if I could make it again tomorrow night! I used nine cups of broth three chicken breasts a whole can of corn and beans and forgot the bay leaf. It also did not take as long as the recipe says because I cooked the chicken and veggies together from the beginning. Read More
