    This recipe could not be easier and the outcome was even better than the Basic Chicken Soup from here. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used baby carrots which are already peeled and all I had to do was cut them in half.  Don't know if Martha would approve but it sure beat having to peel and chop a pound of carrots. I also added a heap of chopped fresh herbs from my garden at the end.  Wonderful staple to make as is, or put your own twist on. Next time I'd like to add dumplings instead of the egg noodles.

    This soup was super-easy and delicious. i didn't have parsnips so i used a bit more carrot and a little celery, and that worked fine. I also added some of the cooked chicken back in, shredded, so it could serve as our main course. Yum.
