love love love. we've been been making for a couple years now and it's always a favorite with guests. we usually throw everything in a slow cooker on low for 8 hrs and the last hour we throw in the noodles.
I've been making this for years. Usually make it when family or friends have a bad cold and they claim it helps them heal. This week, I made slight changes that were fabulous. Added 1/4 tsp of turmeric and 1/4 tsp cayenne to enhance flavor and add a bit of health benefit. Then replaced noodles with Buitoni's Three Cheese tortellini. Hearty and delicious. As a Weight Watcher, it would help to know the serving size. I'm guessing 6, one-cup servings, which is 8 points plus.
I agree about the thickening, it doesn't really need it. I also don't have a dutch oven, so I cooked in phases in a slow cooker one weekend. It was phenomenal!!! Add the noodles in shortly before you want to serve it. The flavor is great without any added extras...those would just be a bonus.
This will be my chicken soup recipe from now on! Followed directions first time, but next time added green pepper, garbanzo beans and bow ties instead of noodles. Simmered chicken breasts in broth, then shredded. Doesn't really need the thickening. Great both times! Good soup to take to those in need of a meal.
