This was just the recipe I was hoping for- as filling and cozy and tasty as a winter homemade soup should be, but without chunks of meat. I’m using egg noodles & extra celery. Thank you!!

That’s a popular question! The recipe does not have chicken meat in it, just chicken stock. We’ve updated the title to avoid further confusion.
