I use bouillon granules (and chicken base) more than bouillon cubes, and the cubes that I used for this recipe had been in the cabinet for a while. Although they tasted fine, I think that's why the soup is darker in color than a traditional chicken soup (impact on appearance only). I used peas only, rather than peas & carrots, since this recipe already has chopped carrots. From an eye appeal perspective, IMO sliced carrots would look better in this soup. I did cut back on the water, omitted the salt because of the bouillon cubes, and after tasting when cooking was complete, added some parsley flakes and a little bit of marjoram. Pretty nice chicken noodle soup.
