"This recipe is among my faves from the realsimpledotcom site, 1 of my best resources for easy-fix & make-ahead ideas great for weeknight meals or that easily convert to serving guests. It's both adult & kid-friendly & also a pretty cool way to use holiday leftovers or warm yourself w/comfort food on a chilly fall/winter night. This can also be used as a starter if served in smaller portions. The RealSimple site had more to say: "Canned creamed corn adds a subtle sweetness to the broth & thickens the soup w/o the need for cream. Have leftover chicken from another meal? Feel free to use it in place of the turkey. Top ea bowl w/parsley or celery leaves (on-hand from the chopped celery used in the soup)". ENJOY!"

This soup was easy to make and is a decent basic soup. One diner thought it was much like the one he was served as a child when under the weather. If I were to make it again, I would add spices/ herbs to enhance the flavor and additional veggies to perk up the color. I've tried your and preferred the stronger flavors there. Note: I didn't add the full amount of salt.
