I skipped sauteing the veges for time, but I think I will do it next time.

I also used a rotisserie chicken. I think the next time I will add more barley. I also added in a zucchini.

This soup was very easy to make and delicious! Perfect for a cool weather meal.

Very hearty and the flavors get better with time. This recipe is a keeper. Easy to tweek and make it your own.

Delicious soup. Instead of using the chicken breasts, I bought an already cooked rotisserie chicken from the Deli and shredded it. Turned out great.

Delicious, hearty soup with a rich,tasty broth.I omitted the mushrooms because my husband and son don't like them. I added zucchini, like another reviwer. I was out of red bell pepper but I'll put it in next time. I added a couple stalks of celery, a bay leaf , fresh minced parsley and a little sugar to balance out the tomatoes. My son had a cold and this soup hit the spot! I am going to use the leftovers for dinner tomorrow night, but I already want more, the broth is so good. I served the soup with Garlic-Cheddar Drop Biscuits and tomorrow I will make grilled cheese. This was the first chilly day of fall here and this was the perfect recipe for it! I will make this again for sure, thanks!
