"Just great. Only had cream of chicken and cream of celery soup and it turned out great. Added 2 cups precooked white and wild rice mix at the end. Great meal."

"This is my favorite soup of all. I eat this soup all winter long. Like some of the others, the only thing I do different is I add egg noodles."

"Excellent recipe! Very easy and delicious. My husband complimented me on it several times so this is a keeper! The only thing I did differently is to add some No Yolks Noodles to turn it into a chicken Noodle Soup."

"This was excellent! Nice way to dress up a canned soup and turn it into a very hearty chicken stew! I boiled the chicken before I cubed it so it would be moist and tender. It was absolutely delicious and perfect for a cold rainy day! Loved it!"

"I made this soup for my family last night. It is quick and simple yet my family loved it! I am not into all this reduced sodium low-fat stuff. Life is too short to not enjoy good food. Anyways, I substituted the canned chicken broth for homemade chicken broth (much better!) and made a homemade white sauce in place the condensed soup. To do this I cooked 3 T. of butter, 3 T. of flour, and 1 cup of milk over medium heat or until thickened. In place of dried onion I used about a teaspoon of so of onion powder. In place of frozen vegetables which no one seems to enjoy at my house, I used about 3/4 cup of chopped carrot and 3/4 cup chopped celery. To add some flavor and a little color, I added about a teaspoon of dried basil and a teaspoon of dried oregano. Will make again, so easy and good!"

"This was fast, easy and delicious. I will make it a regular winter recipe. I added some mini rotini pasta to make it heartier."

"This was a super quick and easy soup to make. I broiled my chicken with garlic and onion powders, rosemary and thyme also for extra flavor. I also added a side of noodles for those who wanted it. I made it for my husband and family members who were working on my roof. They practically inhaled it and cleaned out the pot."
