"We really liked this and there wasn't a bit left. I did use milk instead of evaporated milk and I didn't add the mushrooms, pimentos, hot pepper sauce and almonds as I didn't have them. I also used fresh asparagus but steamed it first. We thought this was awesome."

"I doubled the amount of mushrooms and onion, fired the onion in a not stick pan with a touch of olive oil. Reduced the chicken to 4 cups. The cheese went by 1 cup using sharp. This helped the fat content. I served mine over whole grain rice. Heart concious!"

"I got this recipe several years ago out of one of your magazines and it is absolutely one of our favorites! I hope everyone will try it. I use the low fat/low sodium soup, fat-free milk and reduced fat cheese and it works great!"
