MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 1, 2013

This is my type of chicken noodle soup! I'm using thigh/drumsticks since they are on sale this week. But the skin on the chicken makes it so much more flavorful.! Thanks!!

MY REVIEW

I thought it was rather bland. It seems like there should be more seasonings added after the broth is strained. I added some cajun seasoning & more salt & pepper to give it more flavor.

This soup was great. I agree with the previous comment and will add more salt (and pepper) the next time.
