    Solid base recipe. More seasoning for flavor helps. Lots of herbs, and I love the umami of soy sauce. This base recipe really allows you to make it your own.

    Very, very good. Husband says it may be the best ever. We used leftover chicken that was already seasoned (Schwarma) and let it simmer for awhile in the Dutch oven. The recipe calls for carrots, but they aren’t listed on the app.

    I completely changed the recipe, but this is a great base for the soup. I altered it by using fresh parsley, 2 chicken breasts (browned with olive oil and butter), chicken bone broth, box of wild rice mix, added 2 carrots and bundle of asparagus. The soup was a little runny so I added some corn starch with water. Definitely a keeper and was a hit!

    Good soup to throw together last minute. Quick and easy. Made the perfect amount for 4people and no left overs. If you want left overs, you want to double the recipe.
    It was delicious! I could have added more chicken but, I will the next time! I used white rice and added a mixture of the seasonings that my family would enjoy! I totally forgot the carrots!! LOL My children really enjoyed the meal!! They said it was soooooo goooood!!! Definitely a must for a cold winter night, as well!!

    delish! I used a bit of oregano instead and brown glutinous rice. Then let it reduce to be super creamy.

    My wife and I absolutely LOVE this soup. We changed up the recipe just a bit, for a more natural and evenly distributed taste. ~~~~ First, the chicken broth listed on the list of ingredients was replaced with spring water, spiced, used to boil the chicken. ~~~~ Second, I boiled a little less than a half cup of hard wheat rice, then chucked it in with the shredded chicken. ~~~~ Third, Instead of a whole onion, we use half an onion (sometimes less), because who wants that much onion in their soup, right? ~~~~ You'll need more spices than listed, so I recommend just throwing a bunch of salt, pepper, and thyme (obviously, you can use others if desired).~~~~ Carrots aren't listed on the ingredients, but we chopped one carrot and cooked with the celery and onion.

    "Season to taste" took a lot at the end of the recipe. The 1/4 tsp of Thyme the recipe called for was not merely enough. On top of heavily seasoning the chicken, I added various seasonings such as basil, garlic salt and parsley. I also simmered the soup for about 20 mins.
