I'm giving this a 4 because I really didn't care for it the first night or the green beans in it either. However, this is one of those recipes that gets better as a leftover. I did add a LOT of salt (probably 2 tbsp) to it as I am a salt freak but I still thought it was bland the first night. Hubby and son liked it, surprisingly, as neither are chicken lovers. I heated it up 3 days later and it was really good. The flavors had really come together. Thanks Nikki, I will use this again.

This is a handy recipe when you have a leftover chicken carcass, but it does need to be livened up. I add chicken boullion, poultry seasoning & whatever else I feel like. But a good basic soup.

I agree with MC_MA_OF 3 that it was very bland. The only way I like to make chicken soup IS with a left over chicken carcass. The roasting gives the soup a much better flavor, however, you really need to add a lot more seasonings, including salt, which I normally don't cook with, but in a soup, you do need some. By the way, "Mom Of Three", I got a charge out of reading a couple of your reviews. Darn, no tomato juice in the house!!!!

Unimpressive. I had to add 1/4 cup of Wyler's shakers instant bouillon so that it would have a taste. I also added celery & noodles to make it into "Awesome chicken noodle soup" that is found on this site. It makes a good stock, but then why not just call it leftover roast chicken STOCK. Very misleading.

By the time I got done adding stuff to make this taste good, I had a whole new recipe.

Great use of leftover chicken frames! I used two leftover frames, 8-10 cups water, added 1 tablespoon of salt with the other additions, and subbed peas for beans, since that made more sense to me. Mine's not bland at all, but that could be because I also added 5 jalapenos that were dying a slow, miserable death on my counter. But I'd make this again without the peppers, no problem!

Thanks, was a great starter for my soup. I used some of the left over gravy to add some flavor along with chicken broth.
