Really good flavor, used what i had!!!! No peppers or onions. Swapped beans with red kidney beans and added 2 cups noodles also. Added half teaspoon of crushed red peppers for a little kick. Not a drop left!!!!!

Recipe lacked flavor even with adding salt.

I swapped the Chicken for Hot Italian Sausage and the garbanzo beans for Zuchini squash..fantastic both ways!

Good hearty stew. I used ground beef and ground turkey. Worked just fine.

I decided to boil a whole chicken and shred it. It was very good! Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.

Really good soup. I added about a cup of macaroni shells and it turned out great!!!

Good flavor without the need for salt. Seems like it should be healthy too. I used 1 pack of boneless chicken breast instead of boned chicken, that was my only change on the original recipe.

I used boneless breast and substituted pintos for garbanzos - amazing!

The flavors of this recipe was great. I used boneless breast meet and i cooked in oven for 3 hours at 200 degrees in a dutch oven to blend the flavors. Suggestion for person who posted this recipe. Update the recipe to how to prepare chicken after you take off bone. Inexperienced cooks will pass by this recipe and miss how great it is.
