This soup......rock star!!!!! It is so delicious and comforting!!!! I never add the bay leaf but the broth is amazingly flavorful!!!! I’ve cubed them chicken and shredded the chicken. Either way so good!!! This is truly a must try!!!!
I made this soup with shredded rotisserie chicken rather than with chicken with bone in and it was fab. I used Mamas egg noodles from the freezer section and they were super. I loved the pop that the lemon juice added to it and I even put in two extra lemon slices. I definitely will be making this again.
I made this soup about 4 times this past winter because it was so good. Slow cooking with the bone in the chicken adds so much flavor. I added / substituted some of the ingredients on more than one occasion (e.g., added mushrooms one time, parsnips another time, used onions instead of leeks yet another time), Regardless of these changes, the soup still turned out excellent.
tatses lik dog i lik it
I couldn't get celery root at my local grocer so I used actual celery instead. I didn't have super high expectations because...well, it's chicken soup. But the flavor of this particular one is so comforting, yet deliciously bright from all of those fresh herbs. My whole family loved it (including 2 toddlers)!! And it couldn't have been easier to throw together. I can't wait to make it again!
We followed the directions precisely except substituted a few breasts for thighs. The broth was amazing (using Trader Joe's organic chicken broth as the base). The fresh herbs made the difference with this soup! We'll definitely make it again! YUM!
