MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 10, 2011

"One of our favorites. Quick go to recipe with a little kick. I've added left over cooked chicken to make it a full meal."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 7, 2011

"One of my all-time favorites and I've made it countless times since it was published in Quick Cooking in 2000!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 30, 2010

"Delicious. I made several modifications: I left out the flour and instead mashed up the potatoes after boiling to thicken the soup slightly. I also added 1 lb chopped chicken breast that I had sauteed in a pan with olive oil to make it a bit heartier. YUM!"
