VERY good!, Member evankmeyer

This is an EXCELLENT recipe, with one exception: too salty. We did not accurately calculate how much chicken broth to buy so we substituted with water. It was still too salty. In the future we will use half the chicken broth that is recommended (as we did the first time), but use a low-sodium version of the broth the next time. Anywho, the taste of this soup is GREAT.
