    This is DELICIOUS. I added diced red potatoes to it, about an extra cup and a half of chicken stock because I boiled my veggies before adding chicken back in and cause I added lots of taters. Also used thin sliced breasts. Used 2 tablespoons cornstarch instead of flour cause I prefer it. Also added Aromat- the best seasoning ever.

    Absolutely great! Added my own spices, some wild rice, with some Italian cheesy garlic bread and it turned out amazing! Takes longer than it says to cook the veggies and I left the chicken in the whole time but otherwise it’s amazing!

    This is going to be a terrible review since I changed the whole recipe to make it vegetarian. I subbed gnocchi (1lb) for chicken, used a no chicken vegetable broth (6 cups) and full fat coconut milk instead of cream (full can- maybe 2 cups?) as well as doing extra carrots (4), celery(3 stalks), mushrooms (16oz), and herbs (tons of fresh rosemary, thyme and parsley). Cooking process was basically the same, I just sauteed the vegetables longer (8-10 min) and added the gnoochi and coconut milk when it says to add cream. But, changes aside, I loved it!!! One of the fastest, easier soups I have ever made. So flavorful, everyone had seconds, and it freezes well!

    It was a cold day and while browsing found this recipe. I had everything in the house, no need to go out. Very easy, super delicious. Only thing I didn't have was the half and half, so used evaporated milk. Yum!
