    I made this soup in large quanity (36 servings) for a Church dinner. It was delicious and everyone had seconds. Please note that the recipe does not tell you when to put the chicken in the soup. I put it in after the veges had stewed a while, and before I added the noodles.  -  02 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent soup and very easy to make. I substituted vegetable oil with olive oil, and fried the chicken with onion and garlic. Will definitely make again.  -  21 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
