Reviews for Classic Chicken Noodle Soup
"It turned out Great! Saving this recipe. The Wife loved it."
"Love this! We have made this recipe for years. Does any one know how many cups are in it or what a serving size is? That would be great to know."
"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!!"
"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."
