This is a great and hearty soup that always makes me feel better on those sick rainy days.
"Very tasty! I doubled everything since I used 12 chicken thighs. I still put 1/2 cup of lemon juice instead of doubling it and I added cabbage. Next time I'll omit cabbage & add corn on cob. I'm not much of a soup cook but this came out great!"- Jesca91

angelalaw 9 months agoI was so excited to make this soup. But I was really disappointed. I love Lemon but 1/2 cup of lemon was way too much. I taste nothing but lemon juice when eating this. Was it suppose to be that way? It over powered everything else. So the Spices were lacking. I am not really a cook. But I would say it needs at least 3 bouillon cubes. Possibly double the pepper, salt, garlic, saffron. Possibly take down the lemon to 3 TB I will try these changes next time. I give it 3 stars because the portion size of water, carrots, potatoes and chicken are balanced pretty good. Although I would modify the instructions on the potato size. I used 3 small potatoes not sure what size potato to use. The instructions on how to cook are pretty good. Although didn't say when you should de-bone the chicken. I cooked in bone the entire time hoping it would add more flavor.

misstcalia 2 years agoExcellent. Easy to make and tasty. I find soup is better the next day, so I always make it the night before. I also like to add sweet potatoes and sometimes ripe plantains :-) It's the Cuban in me!
