Reviews for Makeover Curried Chicken Rice Soup
"Really delicious soup. The only change I made was to double the curry powder. Very filling also!"
"Delicious , added extra curry powder. Loved it!"
"Delicious! I substituted Soy Milk for the Half & Half like a previous reviewer and you never would have known! Also added salt to taste at the end. Very filling."
"This was an excellent soup! We changed it a little to lighten it some more by using light butter. Instead of halve and halve cream I used regular soy milk. It was a creamy, rich, tasty, and well worth making. Loved it!"
"This was really good! So creamy and comforting on a cold day. I liked the mild curry flavor. It seemed like it could using a little more spicing up, but not sure with what. It made a whole lot. I put a little shredded colby jack cheese on top when I served it, and my whole family enjoyed it."
"Super!!! I've made this twice and I keep forgetting how good this is. I added twice the curry and used a cajun seasoning salt. A litle spicy but the creaminess of it balances it out."
"I've made this twice, and it tastes great and is fast and easy. I used fat free 1/2 & 1/2 and added more carrots and celery."
"The whole family loved it. Easy to make. Delicious and creamy soup."
"I am a subscriber- and give the magazines as gifts- I get annoyed that I can't see this recipe because of their bookkeeping records- or lack thereof...Margaret"
