"very good, it seemed like alot so I only made 1/2 the recipe of the soup part and about 1/5 the recipe of the biscuit part. I thought their was plenty of biscuits and so I don't think I would want to make as many biscuits as the recipe called for, but what I made I thought was quite good."

"This is the best tasting soup I have ever made. So easy to prepare and there are never left overs. I did add 2 extra bullion cubes for added flavors. YUMMIE and I get loads of request to have it again."

"This was absolutely delicious. It has a lot of butter, though, so not exactly the healthiest. I may try to reduce the butter if I make it again. I substituted noodles for the dumplings because I didn't have enough baking mix. Turned out great!"

"I made this receipe on New Year's day and it was a huge hit! I halfed everything as I only needed 10 servings. It is easy to make and tastes wonderful!!!!! Will make again, perfect on a cold winter's day with a salad and bread sticks."

"My husband LOVED this recipe. I cut the recipe in half because it looked like it would make too much, but now I wish I would have made the full recipe. I also used my own chicken that I chopped up rather than from a can."
