Reviews for Cream Cheese Chicken Soup
"This was just wonderful. I will be making this again for sure but , from now on, I think I will omit the chicken, it's great on it's own."
"great soup!! The only thing I changed was I used a bag of frozen soup mix veggies to save time since we had baseball practice that night. My oldest son gobbled it up!!"
"I made this almost exactly as directed and this has become a new favorite. Nice and thick, it's a very hearty soup! I used a rotisserie chicken I had on hand, which seemed to add a delicious flavor. I will definitely be making this again!"
"Very tasty! I used leftover turkey instead of the chicken. It would also be good with ham."
"I substituted ham for the chicken and I added about a cup of tiny frozen peas and about 1/4 cup sour cream and let it simmer for about 20 minutes before serving. I had also added a couple stalks of minced celery a couple teaspoons of minced garlic while I was cooking down the onions."
