Wow - this really does taste just like what my mom used to make! I cooked the chicken for 2 hours at which point the meat was falling off the bones, so I stopped then. It took a lot longer tha...

Good but not great. And overly complicated. If you're making stock, why the bouillon? (Or vice versa.) 4 hours is *FOREVER* to simmer chicken. It'll be done in less than one. It adds salt twice ...

This soup is really good. I usually make up a giant batch of broth with a rotisserie chicken and I don't measure the veggies. Recently I used leaks. Thanks for a great recipe.

Super flavorful and super yummy. I would omit that last tsp of salt and maybe just salt to taste next time. I also just used chicken thighs, as I hate the thought of cutting up a chicken. And...
