"I have been making this soup for years! It is a family favorite and when I serve it to guests, they ask for the recipe! To make it a little more hearty, I sometimes add a can of chunked chicken. It adds great flavor and protein."

"Very good soup. I used 98% fat free cream of chicken soup and 2% milk Velveeta cheese. This recipe will be fixed regularly in our home. Thanks Darla for a great recipe."
