"Having worked at St. Louis Bread Co. when they served this soup, there are two things you're missing from the soup. One ingredient that was key to the taste is dill weed. Also, they had some very tiny pieces of chicken in it to make it a little richer. Still, this is a good recipe." - jeff bloomer
