It's just chicken and vegetables simmered together but it's so satisfying! Experiment with additions like fresh chopped herbs, lemon and rice, or shredded cabbage and cannellini beans.
Something else. Pretty good soup. I used a roasted chicken carcass from our previous nights dinner as I feel it adds more flavour then the uncooked chicken. I also used tinned chicken stock in lieu of the water, along with my usual seasonings. - 18 Jul 2008
I found I had a better soup by cooking the chicken to the broth stage first before adding the vegetable That way I was able to have the added vegies a little firmer - 30 Jul 2011
Altered ingredient amounts. It's pretty much like mine but I add chicken stock cubes, diced parsnip and turnip, and cooked barley like nan did - 27 Mar 2011
