I totally cheated with this recipe and bought reduced salt chicken broth in a tetra box, and it was still delicious! No need to add salt to this recipe if using store bought broth. The squeeze of lemon at the end in the bowl is what makes it amazing. Love it!

Just made this....was easy and delicious! The fresh lemon and parmesan at the end makes it special. Added some shredded chicken breast to the left-overs which reheated well and tasted great as well! A definite keeper.

I just tried this soup tonight. I ate 1 1/2 bowls. I lost count on how many bowls my husband had. Needless to say, he finished it. This was absolutely delicious. We will be eating this on a regular basis. I would rate this soup a 5 out of 5 stars.
