This was my father's chicken "doodle" soup recipe. (Doodle was a nickname for one of his grands). He's been gone for 21 years, but this recipe is just as good as it was in my childhood.

This is a keeper! I’ve made other versions but this is the best. The only change I made was to use 12 cups of chicken broth completely omitting the bouillon cubes. I didn’t have any marjoram on hand so I sprinkled poultry seasoning in it’s place. I added more carrots but left the onion and celery as stated. My husband ate almost three bowls! Delicious! This will now be added to my recipe book and the other version will be taken out. Read More

Very Good! I used chicken stock rather than water for the only change from this recipe. Was great flavor, served with garlic, cheese biscuits. Made last week and hubby wants to know when we'll have it again. Soon! Read More
