"Not great but not bad, either. I used a rotiserrie chicken from the grocery store to save time. Wife loved it but wasn't crazy about the mushrooms."

"Try some Italian bread crumbs mixed with parmesean cheese for a flavor twist with this one, or

corn chowder soup instead of cream of chicken or trader joes roasted red pepper soup for an altogether different taste flair!"
