This recipe is slurp-worthy deliciousness as it is, but it's also a great base to add your own flair. A touch of extra herbage, more veggies, other proteins. Go wild!

This soup is not intended to be a full blown "from scratch" soup made by gently simmering a whole chicken for 1 1/2 hours. But it's light years better than just plonking shredded cooked chicken into store bought chicken broth!!
