Recipe was perfect. Had to use soy milk as I have a dairy allergy, otherwise followed as written. Husband loved it and will be used regularly at our easy Sunday evening meal. Serve this over homemade waffles - great.

Excellent comfort food. I had the flu and knew I had to eat something. I used the meat off the rest of a store-bought rotisserie chicken, added a well drained can of peas and carrots and omitted the celery since I didn't have any. It really hit the spot! It's what I call a "feel-good" food. Thank you.

I love this recipe...instead of the celery, I added finely chopped green pepper and I serve this in potato baskets.
