This is a wonderful, satisfying and filling soup. Great to serve with just a salad. You can vary this in lots of ways depending on what you have on hand. I've used edemame in place of the peas, and a can of creamed corn in place of the frozen corn, both with good results. Just don't eliminate the parsley. For me, parsley is essential to chicken soup!
