This is my grandson's favorite meal 'in the whole world!' and is modified from my grandmother's recipe. It smells better than anything I've ever cooked!

This was just ok... nothing special and it even seemed to lack something but I don't know enough to know what's missing. I made the recipe exactly as written but I know in the past a close friend would make his in the crockpot and use a roast, cut up, instead of the chicken... I might try it that way but as is I probably won't make this again.

Pretty good...even the kids liked it...but a POUND of parmesan cheese? Around here, it's about $18 a pound!

Good stuff! My family said it reminded them of minestrone, but with cinnamon and cloves. I added green beans and a red bell pepper for color and veggies and it turned out very well.
