    I didn't have cooked chicken available, so substituted 1 can white chunk chicken. Next time I would add onion and fresh ground pepper, but very yummy and quick.

  • Delicious and easy

    I loved this soup. I did add a small spin on it for better flavor. I sauteed the celery, carrots and chicken along with salt, pepper and garlic powder in coconut oil and a quarter of a stick of real butter. After it was cooked through I then added it to the broth as the recipe states but I added 1 can of cream of chicken soup to the broth, mixed thoroughly and then added the chicken and vegis. Absolutely delicious!

    Great Recipe! however, be sure to follow measurement instructions closely... I like to find new quick and healthy recipes for my family. over time I've learned to get measurements right without pulling out my measuring cup. However, with wide egg noodles if you do not use the exact measurements the noodles can succumb the soup and soak all the broth. leaving more of a casserole rather than a soup. Next time I'll try ramen noodles instead which aren't as heavy.

  • This recipe has simple ingrediants found in most kitchens.

    My husband loved it as I did. He doesn't care for many soups so for him to rave about how good it is, is really saying something positive.

  • Rediscovered this tasty soup again!

    Discovered Swanson's Chicken Noodle Soup recipe on the package years ago and loved it. Today with a nasty cold the first thing I thought of was wanting some of this soup. Luckily I had all the ingredients in the pantry. The recipe calls for 1/2 cup noodles. I'm assuming that means 4ounces by weight. But I find that makes too many noodles to the amount of broth so I add another 2 cups of broth. Can't wait to try this with turnip in it like I saw another reviewer used. Sound delish! Will also make a great post Thanksgiving Day soup using the extra turkey.
