  1. Wow lol I grew up eating this coming from a Greek family and our recipe is quite a bit different! This doesn’t have enough substance in my opinion, as I am used to boiling chicken breast in water to get the base and picking apart the chicken to leave in the soup, it gives it far more flavor and you don’t have to include the vegetables or you can even change them, it’s all based on personal taste.
