  3. Recipe Notes

    You can also substitute rotisserie chicken or leftover roasted chicken if you prefer.

    You can use just peas or substitute another mix of your favorite frozen vegetables. Just be sure they are small and cook quickly or perhaps cook them separately in the microwave before adding them to the soup.

    This soup reheats really well and freezes well too.
