    This recipe is amazing. My children ask for it all the time. I made 2 small changes, 1 I boiled a whole chicken in my favorite spices and used both white and dark meat, 2 I used low sodium chicken broth because it was to salty using the regular broth.  -  27 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this and 4X'd the recipe. It was a huge hit and I gave some to family. Even my kids loved it! I am on my second time making this soup.  -  12 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was good. I halved the recipe and it made about 5 large servings. I made regular white rice in my rice cooker and added it instead of instant (worked fine). And I used some cajun seasoning on my chicken to add a little flavor. Will make again.  -  22 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
