We made this soup in culinary classes this month and participants of all ages loved it!  Whole wheat pastry flour worked fabulously for the noodles and added increased nutritional value:)  We sautéed the chicken with garlic and onion (use lots!) for more flavor and added thyme to the soup as well.  Such a satisfying meal on a cold day!
