Ideas to make Chicken Soup Great?

Anyone have ideas to make chicken soup something above average?
I have spices in there along with Asparagus, corn and chicken of course.
Thanks!

Sush, I add sliced fresh mushrooms and homemade noodles to mine, along with some thyme. You didn't say what spices you use.

You need some with a "B". You have Asparagus and Corn. Where is ingredient B?

When I make chicken soup, I also make my noodles, as well as add a lot of thyme. I love thyme in chicken soup, and lots of it. Another way to go is by using lot of pepper.

Along with the thyme, add either sage or savory. Have you also added some garlic and chopped onions to it?

Hey, DS! In addition to all the above, I find that a little ume plum vinegar (yes, even for Western dishes <g>) will take any good soup or broth over the top. I also find chervil a welcome addition.
