This is a nice healthy soup that is very tasty! It sometimes takes a little more flour paste to get it to the desired thickness, and sometimes we use ready made frozen grilled or roasted chicken, but other than that, I follow this recipe exactly! Garnish this dish with a bit of cheddar cheese & oyster crackers and enjoy!
