I added more chicken just because I had leftovers. I did add the eggs which I was reluctant to do. I thought is was better that veg beef soup I make all the time. The addition of the eggs was great. I will make it over and over. You could use store bought rotisserie chicken if you work or need something quick and easy.

This has to be one of the perfect diet foods! I used shredded chicken (from a deli rotisserie chicken), added celery, steamed green beans, leftover roast corn cut from the cob, and a couple extra carrots. It was so hearty that I didn’t even miss rice or noodles. Excellent recipe!

This is fantastic comfort food on a chilly day! I saw some of the suggestions in the reviews saying to add more herbs, so I added fresh cilantro, dried oregano and dried basil, and it was awesome! Used celery instead of cabbage, red onion instead of white onion and one Idaho potato instead of two small red potatoes. Also, the egg adds such a delicious touch.

I just made this and I love it. I added dried basil, thyme some crushed celery seed. Will make it again. Going to try to freeze for lunches on the go!
