It is TRULY cold here in the tri-state area and wanted to make chicken soup. Made this one and was disappointed - the soup definitely tasted like Onion soup and maybe I should not have been surprised since it said Carmelized Onion. I would only make this again if I had a desire for Onion soup - I was looking to taste chicken soup with a mild onion flavor.

This was really good! Don't make the mistake of caramelizing the onions in a separate pan. Use the same pan as the soup so you can get as much of the flavor as possible. Once the onions are done, add the rest of the ingredients as stated. I thought there was a little to much broth. Next time I will reduce broth to 6 cups. This will be the chicken soup recipe I use from now on.

This soup is surprisingly good! It is simple and good. I did change a couple things, I didn't use the carrots or celery and added a little soy sauce to the broth. It turned out great. Taste was similar to wonton soup.

We enjoyed this recipe modified to make it thicker & more stew-like, using only 4 cups chicken broth, about double the chicken meat, no carrots, crushed garlic & 1 cup uncooked quinoa instead of pasta. I also used the same pot for cooking the onions & then adding the other ingredients.

Very good soup! The caramalized onions make all the difference. I did cook the onions first in the stock pot I cooked the rest of the soup to get all the onion flavor and added a bit of poultry seasoning. I used 1/2 regular chicken broth and 1/2 low sodium broth. Very good simple yummy soup.

This is so good, I cook it the first time it gets cold. The carmelized onions are the key and the best. Since I have made it several times, I also did the onions overnight (or day) in the crockpot method and it was even better if that was possible. I highly recommend this one!

This is a really nice soup. It's not extraordinary, but it's just a really good soup with nice flavor. I would defintely make it again. My husband (who claims he doesn't like soup), finished off the leftovers the next day.
