Excellent Soup. Added about 2 extra cups of broth and a pinch or 2 of poultry seasoning. Used rice instead of noodles.

Very good - needs a little extra broth. This is very favorable.

I've made this type of chicken soup recipe for years only without the basil and it's always delicious. Sometimes I use a small amount of thyme instead of parsley but the parsley brings a nice refreshing lightness to the soup; and I use fresh chicken to add nutrients as well as a touch of vegetable broth. Have it always when anyone or myself get a cold and it's so comforting!

Lots of flavor. Used half chicken half vegetable broth. No celery so added broccoli. Baked my own chicken breast so I didn't need to leave my house. May need to add more broth. My family likes more broth. Will make again.

I made this recipe for a sick friend. It was super easy. Good starting point for a classic chicken noodle soup.

This recipe is a classic! Perfect choice for dinner, with a few good "shortcuts" for a busy day (thank you, rotisserie chicken, for all your flavor!). Pair it with some homemade bread and it is the ultimate in comfort food.
