Reviews for Soothing Chicken Soup
"I love to make this recipe. It is very fast & easy and just has a good flavor. I usually add peas to it or mixed vegetables."
"This was a very tasty soup, but the murky color was a little off-putting. I used Mrs. Dash original blend instead of the seasoned salt and used Minute Brown Rice. I think I will try sauteing onion and garlic in place of the onion soup mix (to improve the color)-dry minced garlic and onion when I want to keep it quick. I will also add more veggies (to add more nutritional value and because I love veggies in my soup!) The poultry seasoning, Mrs. Dash and thyme were excellent!"
"Really, really GOOD soup! Out of habit, I added a bay leaf to my broth while I cooked my chicken, but it turned out to be a delicious addition. Keeper!"
"Excellent Soup. I exchanged a grain medley for the rice & doubled the thyme. It makes a lot."
