    Although my mom's version still takes the cake, this was quick and easy. I used 1 can reg broth and 1 1/2 cans of low sodium broth, cut up the carrots and added 1 celery stalk, chopped. Also, right before the chicken was cooked through, I added 1/3 cup noodles. By the time I was finished cutting up the chicken, the noodles were done too. The result was a thick soup that was pretty tasty. Sprinkled dry parsley overall. Thanks Deb.  -  09 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought this recipe was pretty good. I would definitely add more to it. I added some celery, noodles, and garlic powder and it was really great. But without the additions I think it would have been very bland.  -  27 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was really good and sooo easy to make! I had some leftover roasted chicken that I wanted to use up so I just threw that in instead of the boneless breasts. I also added an extra can of broth, a handful of spinach and about a half a cup of ditalini pasta. My husband thought I had been cooking this all day!  -  09 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
