"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."

"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."
