  1. I made this for my husband last night, and he loved it! He requested more broth, so I think I’ll put in 4 oz noodles next time. Thanks for this creative and flavorful variation on chicken noodle soup. 🙂

    • Thanks Amy, so glad you and your husband enjoyed it. I tend to use more noodles because my husband claims anything less doesn’t fill him up. I think that it would still be great with less noodles though!
