    This is a really good recipe for a spicy chicken soup. I used half water and half chicken stock for the broth instead of all water. It gave the soup a little more flavor, I think. I also added fresh garlic to the mix and doubled up on the peppers. I like things HOT!!! A very versatile soup, you could add or omit almost any veggies that you please. I will make this again, and probably play with the recipe more each time!  -  03 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I loved this soup...or souw as we called it because it turned out much closer to a stew than a soup. I used 3 cups of mixed chicken instead of the wings and used the water the chicken had been cooking in for the water. I only put a 1/2 onion in as I am not a huge fan. Next time, I may add some extra jalapeno. I liked it enough to take some to work for my co-workers to try and they all liked it. In fact, I am forwarding this recipe to one of them as we speak.  -  11 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
