I was in a rush so I made this soup on high for 4 hours. It was tasty! I had to add 2 more cups of broth and a little bit of salt. I also substituted some chicken breast instead of thigh. Overall a very good and easy recipe! Definitely a go to for cold, winter days!

I'm glad you like it! It's one of my go to recipes, for cold winter days. Also, thanks for mentioning the salt thing, I should have specified that I made the recipe to be low salt for people with high blood pressure. I'll write that into the description now!
