This soup is full of veggies and chicken which is a delightful way to end the day. Try substituting a can of creamed corn or whole kernel corn for the frozen corn, too.

Quite good but needs a bit of adjustment. I followed the recipe exactly and for us it was a bit too salty and I didn't add any extra salt. Also it's not the prettiest soup. My husband and I enjoyed it though I just need to work out how to reduce the salt content without losing the flavour. Thanks Read More

I made this recipe as part of a soup and salad supper (served with Italian Bread from a Bread Machine). The soup itself is tasty but (as pointed out by another reviewer) it's not that pretty. Although I did cook it for the recommended time I didn't add the broccoli until the last half hour. I added a handful of frozen peas and carrots that needed using. If I make this again I would cook the chicken separately (or just use leftover chicken) and throw it in near the end. Cooking the chicken from a raw state is part of what makes it "not so pretty" - the length of cooking time is the other. This soup could do with a much shorter cooking time. I did add additional boullion for a little more flavor. I also used frozen mixed peppers because I had them on hand. Read More

I'm glad I chose to ignore the negative reviews and try this recipe. It was great. Very tasty and simple to make. I added some extra garlic and mixed frozen veggies instead of just corn. Perfect for a cold snowy day! Read More

Delicious! I was concerned the spices would be strong and I am happy to report I was wrong. I love garlic so I added an extra clove. This is great recipe to use up whatever veggies you have in your fridge or freezer. I used red instead of green peppers and added green zucchini that I sliced into round slices and cut each into quarters. I also has an open can of chicken broth that I used in conjunction with the water and bouillon cubes. Will definitely be making this again! Read More
