Peppercorns and a handful of herbs add the perfect seasoning to this low-sodium stock developed by our Test Kitchen home economists. To give it even more flavor, they first browned the chicken and sauteed the veggies. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
I cook most of the weekend meals and share weekday cooking duties with my wife. I also like to take food to neighbors, co-workers and our parents. And I try to send things like this hearty soup to people I know are sick.—Terry Kuehn, Waunakee, Wisconsin
Rich in chicken flavor, this traditional broth is lightly seasoned with herbs. Besides making wonderful chicken soups, it can be used in casseroles, rice dishes and other recipes that call for chicken broth. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Early in winter, I make up big pots of this hearty soup to freeze in plastic containers. Then I can bring out one or two containers at a time. I heat the frozen soup in a saucepan on low all morning. By lunchtime, it's hot and ready to serve! —Ann Main, Moorefield, Ontario
My family loves to come to the table for hot homemade biscuits and a bowl of this flavorful filling soup. They rave over how good it tastes. A friend shared the recipe with me.

Brimming with meat and vegetables, this full-bodied soup is sure to take the chill off frosty weather. Vary the veggies to make the most of your own garden plenty...and don't forget to add a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.
This hearty, chunky soup is the perfect answer to your Turkey Day leftovers. Combining the earthy flavors of curry and cumin, no one will mistake it for canned soup! Jane M. Scanlon, Marco Island, Florida
Meet the Cook: This soup's one my mother taught me to make. It's good all year but especially when the weather's cold. In winter, I serve it with grilled cheese sandwiches. It would also be a nice lunch with a side salad or homemade corn bread. Even our grandchildren - we have four - like it. It's a good way of getting them to eat their vegetables. My husband and I have two grown daughters.
