5.0
1 rating
The combination and the amount used of special chicken and veggies, as well as the seasoning/aromatics and the six hours of cooking time, result in a heavenly broth. The addition of wide rice noodles and garden-fresh cilantro are all thats needed to transform these simple ingredients into a wonderful, immensely satisfying culinary delight.
