Cream Cheese Chicken Soup Recipe

Cream Cheese Chicken Soup Recipe

After tasting a similar soup in a restaurant, I went home and cooked up my own version. It's so soothing on a winter evening served with crusty French bread. For a change of pace, try substituting ham or turkey for the chicken. —Kathleen Rappleye, Mesa, Arizona

"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."

"This recipe was a HOMERUN!! My very picky husband could not stop raving about it. It tastes almost like chicken pot pie in a soup. I did make a couple of changes - I added 2 extra cups broth, 1 extra cup of milk, a couple tablespoons sour cream to the milk/flour mixture, and I stirred it longer to create a thicker soup. At the end we added about a cup of canned peas. This will be a new family favorite!!"

"Very good. Just a little bland for my tastebuds; I added some worcestershire sauce and hot sauce to kick it up a bit. My husband liked it a lot - loves potatos. This will go into the tried and true box."

"Man, is this soup good! I don't know if my veggies were larger than what the recipe called for, but I had to add twice as much chicken broth. It was so delicious and creamy. I will be making this all winter long. I can't wait!"

"My family loves this-I usually do my own amount of ingredients though...I think I end up with more of a double batch..."

"I love this recipe and have made it several times and still get raving reviews. I cook it in my slow cooker with the exception of the flour, milk, and cream cheese for 4 hours on high, then I add the fluoro, milk and cream cheeses until thickened (10-15 minutes). I also like to add one stick of celery (chopped), 2-3 fresh large mushrooms (chopped), and some ground garlic. I love to serve this in a bread bowl."
