Quick, easy and tasty. We've made this twice now. One of our favorites. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was excellent. I’ve always had trouble making a good chicken soup, and the thought of adding a can of diced tomatoes never occurred to me for a chicken soup base. It was excellent. I improvised, sautéed the onion, garlic and celery along with two skinless bone-in chicken legs and thighs (only thing in the house), added the chicken stock(32oz) and tomatoes (28 oz can), thyme, rosemary, bay leaves and a little mrs. Dash extra spicy seasoning blend, ½ teaspoon pepper to give it a little kick. I made sure the chicken was cooked well, pulled the chicken off the bone, put it back in the pot with the stock, then added the carrots and zucchini and let it cook some more until they were tender. During the cooking process, every now and then I’d add a little water to the chicken stock because it was simmering down. However, you do not want to add too much water, otherwise you will water down the flavor. This was the absolutely best soup I’ve ever made better than mom’s. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good. Only change was adding a can of Italian green beans for more veggies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a quick, delicious meal I make frequently. I make it easier by purchasing a rotisserie chicken to cut down cooking time. It is by far one of my family's FAVORITE meals! My kids love it and want seconds. I always make a double batch to freeze and eat for lunches. Thanks Paula Deen! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This has become my go-to comfort-soup recipe. With the exception of adding salt, pepper, 1/4 tsp of thyme, rosemary & sage, I usually follow it to the tee unless I have extras in the fridge and am in a creative mood, and it is perfect just as written. If you're in a decidedly creative mood, or if your family, like my husband, is more of a "stew" person, you can add rice, a cup of cooked egg noodles or some form of pasta. I find that 1/2 cup of pastina (the teeny tiny pasta stars adds a lot of body and livens up the texture. Occasionally, I add about 2 small potatoes, diced, or 1 cup of frozen mixed vegetables, really, any veggies on hand are amenable to this basic recipe. My grandchildren love it. Love you, Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this soup with a few modifications. First, my family doesn't usually like zucchini so I drained and rinsed and added a can of cannelloni beans. I also used chicken stock and added some water. Since the broth seemed a little on the thin side, I added 2 tbsp butter, which added body to the broth. I threw in other seasonings, including parsley. It was wonderful! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this- easy to make and hearty! I boil and shred the chicken for the recipe because i like the consistency. Also, i like to add a lot of garlic, celery and some white beans as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Loved this recipe. Added a bit more spice: oregano, Thyme, parsley, and basil (all dried. Also added some elbow macaroni (cup. Everyone loves it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't like this soup at all. It tasted too tomatoey even though i drained the tomatoes. there was no flavor to it even after i added additional spices and garlic. Absolutely won't be making this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this as written and it was very good. Then I made it again but added 2 stalks of celery (chopped, garlic powder (or you can use fresh garlic in with the veggies, 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper, and 1/2 tsp fennel seeds which I crushed up with mortar and pestle. Although chicken is definitely healthier, I prefer this soup with meatballs instead. I get a bag of frozen meatballs from Aldi; I just add them in with the broth and tomatoes. I think the garlic, fennel seeds and celery really make this a 5 star soup. My parents go NUTS when I make this for them!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This soup is great. My husband (who hates cooked veggies asks for it all the time. A winter staple at our house. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This soup was wonderful! I made a few changes such as using dark meat instead of the white meat, added a yellow summer squash and some peppers as well. I like a little heat to my soups so I added a can of diced tomatoes and chillis as well as some egg noodles. This soup was a hit with my family which was quite the shock because my husband doesn't like zuchinni and summer squash. I will make this soup again and again it was so easy to make. I am glad I decided to double the batch! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a really good soup!! I followed the recipe, except I did add green beans. Excellent with some warm crusty bread. The only thing I would do different would be to shread the chicken instead of cubing it. I just didn't like the feel of the chicken in my mouth. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an amazing chicken and vegetable soup - and healthy too! Yay! Having made this many times over the past month, the soup has always been full of flavor and easy to make. I usually use chicken stock or, failing that, a reduced sodium chicken broth. I also use fresh tomatoes at times and add some basil and garlic to the recipe as well as a bit more stock to make up for the lack of liquid if I use fresh tomatoes. I have a pretty high standard for chicken and veggie soup. So many recipes rely upon salt to carry (or cover up the soup. The chicken is tender, the vegetables are a good accompaniment to the chicken and the broth is flavorful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! If you added extra broth you could add in some small noodles and have sort of an Italian wedding soup. Very good recipe and super easy to make! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely awesome! It was so easy, HEALTHY, and very satisfying. I made some pasta (mini shells so that my husband could add a little to his and he liked that better, but I enjoyed it just as written. Wonderful with homemade biscuits or garlic bread! item not reviewed by moderator and published

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the soup--nice quick weeknight soup. My husband had a suggestion--change it to Mexican. We now use tomatoes with chilies (Red Gold Mexican Fiesta and Monterey Jack cheese. We also add a little chopped cilantro, crushed tortilla chips, and sour cream for topping. It's one of our favorites. Thanks Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published

Perfect for an easy fall dinner. I made a few changes/additions. I used regular diced tomatoes, and added fresh basil, garlic, and bay leaf. Also added some celery, yellow squash, kale, and a can of white beans. Served with breadsticks, and both hubby and I enjoyed it! item not reviewed by moderator and published

What a great easy soup!!! I used yellow squash instead of zucchini, added fresh garlic and followed the rest of the recipe. Full of flavor, healthy & simple!!! My whole family really enjoyed Will definitely make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The soup is delicious, but requires a few changes/additions to make it shine. No good italian woman is ever going to make this dish with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and I suggest substituting with chicken thighs because the breasts will dry out far too much during the cooking process, and add little flavor to the soup. Also, keep the skin on while the meal cooks, it adds a lot of flavor. You can remove the skin after cooking if you like, but I leave it on. I use plain canned tomatoes, and add fresh oregano and basil (add them towards the end, if you add fresh herbs too early in the cooking process, their delicate flavor is lost, and I also add a good amount of black pepper, salt, and a dash of red pepper for some heat. Finally, I like to add in whole wheat egg noodles if I want to make the dish heartier, especially during the winter months. All in all, it is an easy, fast soup to make, and it is also an easy recipe to modify and make your own! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My kiddos, Hubby and I all love this soup. It is so easy to make. My kids can help chop veggies while I cook the chicken. This is also a great recipe to take to families in need. I've delivered it to families who are grieving the loss of a loved one, and to families who are celebrating the arrival of a baby. Everyone loves it! While I would not freeze any leftovers, it does reheat well from the refrigerator. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This soup is so easy! The hardest part is the chopping. It's also easy to customize with whatever vegetables you prefer. I omit the zucchini because I don't like how it gets stringy in the soup, I add more carrots, celery, and some pasta. It's delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
very good! This is the 2nd time I made this. This time I added a can of beans and some frozen corn. I also seasoned my chicken w/ S&P and rotisserie seasoning. This is so easy to make and taste soo good. Love it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very Tasty! It was my first attempt using my new dutch oven, what a great way to break it in! It was so simple, inexpensive ingredients and so healthy! My hubby doesn't like chunky tomatoes but he even liked the soup. I imagine it will taste even better tomorrow for lunch! I followed the directions exactly except I seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, italian seasoning and just a touch of poultry seasoning. I also added garlic with the onions and tossed in a bay leaf while it was simmering. Will make again! Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Seasoned the chicken with salt before browning. Added finely diced sweet peppers (red, green, and yellow), garlic, and celery with the onion. Only tweak I would make next time is to dice the zucchini more finely. I also might substitute boneless, skinless thighs for the breasts. It was super tasty and wonderfully easy, especially after a long day at work. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! I added some celery and garlic just because I'm a big fan of the garlic and celery seems to make almost every soup or stew tastier. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Brown Chicken first as suggested. Wonderful recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe rocks! If you are looking for a healthy, feel good food, this is it! I was simply amazed I made something so darn good, in so little time. Only thing I did differently was when cooking chicken I added dried Italian spice mix, sea salt, and ground pepper. Also, added 1-2 cloves of garlic diced after cooking onions. For my vegetables added a little cabbage to the mix. My husband and I loved it! Next time will use bigger pot for more left overs to freeze. Try this you won't be disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
plain and simple. Easy to make soo good. whenever my husband is sick it's the thing he wants now instead of chicken noddle. even my picky toddlers like it. Parm on top made it just right. item not reviewed by moderator and published
For those of you who are so diligent to their diets, I have made this recipe multiple times and I often add some green cabbage to it as it is an awesome calorie burner. Instead of adding the parmesean cheese, I add a wedge of Laughing Cow Light Swiss to the middle of my bowl and everything gets instantly creamy and so yummy and only 35 calories for one wedge. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've always been a fan of Olive Gardens "Zuppa Toscana" Soup and thought no other could come close, but after my wife fixed Paulas Italian Chicken Vegetable Suop, I'll go on record to say, "It's the best soup I've ever eaten...bar none". My daughter and her husband came over and tasted the soup yesterday, and they agree, it's great. My hat goes off to Paula for this recipe.. It's the best soup in the world. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This soup was absolutely amazing, easy, and modifiable depending on your ingredients! I've only made one other soup ever, but this was the best I have ever had, and my boyfriend won't stop talking about it! The few changes I made.... -instead of two zucchinis, I used 1.5 zucchinis and 1 yellow squash -I added about a cup of green beans broken into bite sized pieces -Added one minced hot cayenne pepper in when you add the carrots and onion (If you don't like spice, skip this step) - Added chopped parsley and rosemary, about 2 Tb. each after cooking the chicken -After everything was assembled I added 1 Tb. Italian seasoning I chopped everything while the chicken was cooking, and in took about 20 minutes to prepare, 30 minutes to simmer, just as the recipe indicated. I sent it to all of my family and friends, you won't be disappointed! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is an easy and delicious soup recipe. I used a pkg of matchstick carrots as a shortcut instead of slicing up carrots on my own.

I made this great chicken-vegetable soup recipe a couple days ago and have been enjoying it ever since! So tasty, so good for you and so easy to put together.

It's really good with a salad or sandwich and I will make it again very soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This works in any large pot you might have, its a great place to start and add your own favorites, I added shrimp at the end of cooking time along with some spicy Italian sausage that had been cooked seperately at the beginning of the process, also added some sliced fennel to the carrots and onions, it was mighty tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published

when i find a simple recipe i like to change it up and make it my own... so with this good base idea from paula... instead of chicken i used polish sausage, and fire roasted tomatos, and just added some spices, like garlic, basil, oregano, parsley, (fresh or dried works) i also like adding some pasta to it also, any kind will really do, but tri-color bowties are quite festive for this soup :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added cooked dark meat chicken at the last minute and I think that made the soup better than the dry white meat. And I also added some shell pasta. Perfection. \ Its a good recipe to start with and then put your own little touch on. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I saw Paula Deen make this soup on her show and decided I just had to make it for myself. I'm glad I did! I will be making this soup over and over again. I embellished this recipe by adding two ribs of celery with the carrots and onions, and then adding 8oz sliced mushrooms with the zucchini and tomatoes. I then added 6oz fusilli the last ten minutes the soup simmered, and seasoned with salt, pepper,,and garlic powder along the way. The end result?

I saw this on her "souperdelicious" episode this week, and felt COMPELLED to try it. I read the reviews, and basically did everything extra that everyone suggested: added bacon drippings beforehand, added celery salt (pretty liberal use...I was afraid it was too salty, but no), garlic, broke up the spaghetti sticks and threw those in, threw in some flat-leaf parsley I had chopped up...suffice to say it was the best darn soup I've ever made. I have to admit I was concerned it wasn't flavorful enough, but the kosher salt and celery salt and pepper took care of that. Everyone loved it (including me...three bowls!)...great soup Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love this because I can make it, go off with the kids and dinner is almost ready when I am home. I added a couple stalks of celery and some garlic.

Simple, quick, and healthy!! I modified it a pinch by cutting the amount of chicken in half and doubling the veggies! I threw in every veggie I had on hand! I also jazzed it up by cooking a few strips of bacon in the pot before adding the oil or veggies and left the drippings. I do this for most soups since it gives a lot of flavor (of course!!).

We have been enjoying this very special soup three ways: Italian Chicken, Italian Beef, making it with lean 3/4 " chuck steak, and Italian Meatball, made with ground beef and pork meatballs. I love to cook and we, my husband and I, enjoy watching your shows whether, with you alone or those featuring your precious Michael, your adorable sons, Jamie and Bobbie, and your sweet brother , Bubba. We love to see beautiful Brooke and grandson, Jack. Jamie and Bobbie are coming to Altoona, PA, May 3rd, only 38 miles away from Johnstown, where we live. We tried for tickets, but they are sold out. I am able to record all your shows, in case I am not home, I don't want to miss any one. I got Christmas WITH Paula Deen from My son, Jeffrey, who also enjoys you and your recipes.

Soup doesn't get any better than this! Hearty, healthy, flavorful and filling. I liked the suggestions from "Perfect Warm-up" (1/2/08) of adding white beans - which are a very healthy addition to one's diet. Also, chopped baby spinach and orzo are delicious possibilities tho' I wouldn't add pasta or potatoes if I were adding the beans. I freezse single serving portions for my husband's late night supper/snacks. (He teaches at the college and doesn't get home until 9 or 10). They're easy to deforst and microwave and sure beats putting a slice of cake in your tummy just before bed. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is one of my favorite soups to make. My husband isn't such a fan (he says it tastes good, but the canned tomatoes give him heart burn), but that just means more for me. I substitute plain tomatoes and then add chopped garlic (when I cook the carrots & onions) and then the other herbs when I add the liquid ingredients. I also like to add some pasta (cook it al dente first) about 5 minutes before the end of the cooking time. I've always got some of this in the freezer for a quick lunch because it re-heats so well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
