After tasting a similar soup in a restaurant, I went home and cooked up my own version. It's so soothing on a winter evening served with crusty French bread. For a change of pace, try substituting ham or turkey for the chicken. —Kathleen Rappleye, Mesa, Arizona

"I made this almost exactly as directed and this has become a new favorite. Nice and thick, it's a very hearty soup! I used a rotisserie chicken I had on hand, which seemed to add a delicious flavor. I will definitely be making this again!"

"Very tasty! I used leftover turkey instead of the chicken. It would also be good with ham."

"I substituted ham for the chicken and I added about a cup of tiny frozen peas and about 1/4 cup sour cream and let it simmer for about 20 minutes before serving. I had also added a couple stalks of minced celery a couple teaspoons of minced garlic while I was cooking down the onions."
