World's Best Chicken Soup

“I LOVE chicken soup but am allergic to wheat so can't do noodles. My husband hates rice, so I used quinoa in this. It was absolutely delicious. My husband agrees, and that's a huge complement since he is the "soup chef" at our local VA hospital and his soups are very popular out there.”
