Reviews for Simple Chicken Soup
"easy and tasty!"
"I made this soup for my family last night. It is quick and simple yet my family loved it! I am not into all this reduced sodium low-fat stuff. Life is too short to not enjoy good food. Anyways, I substituted the canned chicken broth for homemade chicken broth (much better!) and made a homemade white sauce in place the condensed soup. To do this I cooked 3 T. of butter, 3 T. of flour, and 1 cup of milk over medium heat or until thickened. In place of dried onion I used about a teaspoon of so of onion powder. In place of frozen vegetables which no one seems to enjoy at my house, I used about 3/4 cup of chopped carrot and 3/4 cup chopped celery. To add some flavor and a little color, I added about a teaspoon of dried basil and a teaspoon of dried oregano. Will make again, so easy and good!"
"This was a super quick and easy soup to make. I broiled my chicken with garlic and onion powders, rosemary and thyme also for extra flavor. I also added a side of noodles for those who wanted it. I made it for my husband and family members who were working on my roof. They practically inhaled it and cleaned out the pot."
"Simple and delicious version of the traditional chicken soup. I boiled my chicken in the chicken broth to cook it and then just added the rest of the ingrediants. I added 1 tsp. of celery salt, 2tsp dried chives, 2 tsp Garlic powder, and 2tsp onion powder (since I was all out of fresh onions). Gr8 recipe."
"This was certainly simple and quick; I sprinkled in onion powder for the dried minced onion, and cooked the mixed veggies separately before adding to the broth and cream soup mixture. Also used regular broth and cream of chicken soup or I would hear this question, "Why does this have no flavor?" It is pretty salty: the full fat, full sodium version."
