, this is an easy and fantastic dish - 22 Aug 2011


made this today and it is very tasty and a hit with the whole family. They asked when I would be making it again - 27 Jan 2013


Just cooked this soup for lunch for my poorly kids - one having had four wisdom teeth removed and the other has tonsillitis. It was brilliant - so easy and so delicious - a complete hit. The only thing I did differently was I cooked some chicken thigh bones and whole chicken wings to make the stock and used the meat off everything for the soup - really tasty. - 23 Oct 2013
