This is my all time favorite soup. It's very satisfying and easy to make. While I was home for the winter break this year, my grandmother finally taught me how to make it.

I quite liked this simple and hearty recipe. It's very good for a chilly evening. However, the turnip adds quite a bit of flavor, so if you don't like turnips, you might not enjoy this recipe. I used Yukon Gold potatoes with the peel still on. It was quite good that way.

Very Tasty. I had some cooked chicken leftover so I simmered the veggies in chicken broth until soft and then i just threw in the diced chicken. This is one of those recipes were nature's ingredients are the star and nothing fancy is needed to make it a winner. My husband and children ate this up. Thank you for sharing!

I browned the chicken first, after cutting it up in small pieces (I only had breast meat). I used a tsp. of olive oil. I thought it was very flavorful and simple. Great for the cold winter Michigan days.
