"I have made this soup for years and it's our favorite. I think there was a mistake made when the recipe was converted online as this recipe is supposed to have a large can of white chunk chicken in it. My family likes it with two large cans of chicken and we garnish each bowl with crushed nacho cheese tortilla chips."

"Okay, so I am the one who is spacey. I thought it said chicken but instead it's corn. My mistake, sorry! I must have thought it had chicken because of the broth, so...I think I will try it with shredded chicken."

"This sounds tasty and I would like to try it, however, I notice the only chicken in it is the broth. It seems like the chicken flavor would be disguised by the other ingredients. Was it meant to have chicken chunks or pieces in it? Obviously, I could add it on my own but it would be nice to know if it was first made with or without."
