    I used this and substituted finely chopped broccoli for celery and it was amazing. It paired amazing with toast.

    Used this recipe and another fave and combined. I used basil, thyme, and a little rosemary along with a Mexican squash...delish!

    Trust this five star recipe! As one reviewer mentioned, I added 1/2tsp celery salt. Perfect! Canned or leftover chicken is perfect. Easy, quick and comforting! As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine I enjoy recipes that I can trust for classic family meals that can be made quickly!

    Because I love cabbage, would not mind putting some shredded cabbage through it! Very yum.

    Very good! Exceeded my expectations. I used a can of chicken because I just needed to throw together a super quick dinner. Didn't think it would be so tasty. Added some sriracha sauce to my bowl and it was so good!

    This is great! It is my go to recipe for when someone needs a big bowl of comfort soup fast! I use all low sodium chicken broth and sub a few pinches of thyme for the parsley. I sometimes use cream of mushroom soup (family preference) and usually cook the noodles separately so they don't get mushy for the next day leftovers. When I have the time, I let it simmer on low for longer.
