this soup was very good. not too salty, but had lots of flavor. i added extra parsnips, and this added to the flavor. definitely will make again.
I made a cheater's version of this recipe. I used chicken that had already been cut into chunks so that I didn't need to cut it up later. Like a previous reviewer, I replaced the parsnip with a handful of potatoes. I omitted the salt and pepper and added 3 heaping tablespoons of herbe de provence, instead. During the last 10 or so minutes of cooking time, I added two handfuls of butterfly-shaped noodles (sorry--I can't remember the proper name at the moment!!). It was a tasty and hearty soup. I will make it again.
This was really good and comforting on a cold day. Made it as instructed except I substituted red and purple potatoes for the parsnips and used leftover rotisserie chicken. This was an easy chicken soup recipe and I would make it again.
