  • “This is the first chicken noodle soup that I have ever made. It turned out really good. I added a little more veggies than called for. I also added 2 chicken bouillon cubes for a little more flavor. Thanks for posting such a great & easy recipe!”

  • “I just made this soup for my teenage daughter (17 and vegetarian) and she loves it!!
    Thank you Kate!!”

  • “We made this last night~cooked the chicken breasts whole, then removed to cut up while boiling the noodles in the broth.Easy recipe–will use again!!”

  • “This is a nice basic chicken noodle soup that one can make in about half an hour! I forgot to add the parsley at the end, and the soup was lacking in flavor, in my opinion. I will experiment in the future to find a way to add more flavor. I’m betting that made-from-scratch stock would give it that extra punch!”

  • “Made it last weekend and was quite delicious my mother in law who is very picky loved it.I also added about 1/4 cup of diced tomatoes in it as well .”

  • “This was quite satisfying. I added a picture too. Thanks for sharing!”

Thank you Kate – Thank you !!!”
