When we had to work late, I offered to get my husband to bring some leftover Chicken soup my mother-in-law made. Everyone agreed because we were all broke, but there were groans. After we ate the soup everyone wanted the recipe.

Very good recipe. I did have to add extra broth though. Also, I cut the carrots and celery into smaller pieces so that I could leave them in the broth and not discard them.

Since alot of reviews said was bland I added an envelope of Savory Herb with Garlic dry soup mix. It was GREAT comfort and flavor. Try adding this it really added the flavor
