Any time I serve this thick comforting soup, I'm asking for the recipe. Because it is loaded with chunks of potatoes and chicken, no one suspects that it's low in fat. -Carla Reid of Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island

"This is very good. I was looking for a recipe to use up one cup of evaporated milk I had left over, and this is a winner. Simple but tasty. I added one chopped carrot with the onion, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I will be making this again."

"Overall, this is a recipe I would definitely make again. It has a good flavor but I think I will add a bit more veggies and spice to it next time. I like the creamy taste though, vs a broth base."

"Absolutely amazing soup! I used 2 cups half and half instead of milk and evaporated milk. It is to die for. I have added this to my frequent rotation."

"Very easy to make. A cross between cream of chicken soup and cream of potato. I too added a few more potatoes to the pot and used all 1% milk. Definitely a make again recipe."

"I wanted a thick creamy soup so after cooking the potatoes, before adding the chicken, I used an immersion blender to purée about half of the potatoes. It was fantastic with warm biscuits!"

"We added a 1/4 c of slivered almonds and tasted just like chicken Almond soup at Sullivans Restuarant in Knoxville, TN. Excellent!!"
