Cheddar Chicken Potpie

 Cheddar Chicken Potpie
Cheese soup is one of my favorites, but it's a bit too rich for my husband's tastes. So, by changing the ingredients a little, I came up with a variation of potpie we both enjoy. (If I'm in a hurry and don't have the time this takes to bake, I'll leave off the crust, add extra milk and serve it as a chowder.) —Sandra Cothran, Ridgeland, South Carolina
