What do you put in your chicken soup?

We all know how to make chicken soup. So that's not really what I'm asking about.

Rather, I'd like to know what you do, or put into your chicken soup to be precise, to make it your own.

We can all pretty much assume that we all start with some sort of stock (or broth) - be it consommé or (gulp!) bouillon or whatever. But then the possibilities are endless from there, right?

Do you add chicken meat?

What about noodles? Or dumplings? Or gnocchi? Or matzo balls?

Some other starch maybe? Potatoes?

Do you add vegetables? Peas and carrots? Corn?

Do you add a sour component like some of the Eastern Europeans appear to do?

In contributing to the Wiki page on chicken soup, it sort of piqued my curiosity as to what 'Hounds think. So, please, do tell.
