The flavor of the broth is incredible! Next time I’m going to omit the apples because they didn’t add anything extra to the soup and I’ll double the spinach.

This was absolutely fabulous! I did not have spinach....definitely needed some "greens" so I added lots of cilantro. Best Indian stew I ever made....Thank you for this! I have never reviewed a recipe before but just had to with this one. Try it....you will not be disappointed.

OMGosh. This is the best soup I have had in a long time. I will no longer wonder what to do with a chicken carcass. I did have to keep an eye on it and stir it so the rice wouldn't stick, but who cares when the results are that fantastic.
