Reviews for Cold-Day Chicken Noodle Soup
"Very good - needs a little extra broth. This is very favorable."
"This soup is SO flavorful!! The entire family loved it . . . thanks for sharing!"
"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!"
