    Beautiful recipe. Made it with whatever vege we had. Super simple to make. Also added 4 chicken thighs at hubbys request. Will definitely make again!

    Great recipe! I did add bacon and a tiny bit of chili. Next time I would probably reduce the water and increase the chicken stock. Just to build on that flavour even more.

    Halved the recipe except put whole can of beans in. Instead of tin tomatoes I oven roasted fresh and then skinned. No zucchini. Used purple and orange carrots. Added fresh corn cut from cob. Used soup pasta. I ended up using 3 cups of chicken stock and no water so was really thick which I wanted. Easy recipe that can add any veg to suit needs and taste
