"I used vegetable broth in place of the chicken and maybe that was the problem, but this soup had no taste. I ended up adding chicken bouillon and almost doubling the seasonings to get any taste. Even then, my husband and daughter didn't care for it so I don't think we'll be using this recipe again."

"When I saw this recipe, I realized I had everything on hand except the chili flakes; so with some creamy chicken mushroom egg rolls, out came the egg drop soul as a side. Despite substituting chili powder for the chili flakes, this is the best egg drop soup recipe that I have come across. Next time I make it, I want to try adding green onions, but this dish was fantastic as is."
