  • Wow! This tastes like it came out of a can! I did add some rosemary and oregano, as you suggested! I only had 2 cans of broth, so I added 6 cups of water and chicken cube! Even though it is more soupy, it is filled with lots of healthy stuff! And it tasted so great!Thanks! I'll make this again! - 2/2/08
