"DELICIOUS and easy meal! My husband usually has three bowls full, and even my picky toddler and 6 year old will eat it. Definitely follow the "Fast Chicken Soup Base" recipe and use that, makes it s..." See moreo much more flavorful than plain old canned broth. In addition to parsley I use thyme, and depending on what's in my pantry/fridge I replace the white rice with wild rice or fine egg noodles, add parsnips and celery, eliminate the peas (not a fan). And I simmer it much longer than the 10-20 minutes recommended, more like 2 hours. Serve with a salad and nice crusty bread or rolls, and you have yourself a super meal!!!!"

I used the chicken broth after I boiled the chicken ..." See moreand then strained it and added 3 more cans of canned chicken broth. Make sure you use dried thyme leaves and not ground thyme like I did. I have thyme growing in my flowerbeds, I should have added that instead (oh well). I also added a little tarragon. My boyfriend liked it. I liked it to although we'll be eating chicken soup for days."
