I like to serve this hearty chowder with garlic bread and a salad. It's a wonderful dish to prepare when company drops in. The rich, mild flavor and tender chicken and vegetables appeal even to children and picky eaters. —Hazel Fritchie, Palestine, Illinois

"Yummy, this soup is delicious and a definite keeper! As I do with all my chicken soups, I added a bay leaf, a bit of sage, thyme and rosemary; these herbs add wonderful depth of flavour."

"This lacks a little bit in flavor, so I made sure to season my chicken with garlic, onion, salt and pepper before adding it to the chowder. Everyone loved this so I will be making it again."

"easy, quick, and delicious. Just to try and cut down on the carbs a little I only used 1 T of flour along with 2 c of heavy whipping cream instead of the milk. Also did not have chicken broth so I used 3 c water with 2 bouillon cubes and omitted salt. It was perfect!"

"this recipe is great, registered as a member of this site just so i could say that i also occasionally use steak chunks instead and it's amazing. i just brown the steak chunks a bit before adding to the stew and use beef broth instead of chicken broth! it's a cold night favorite and tastes great in a bread bowl :)"

"This is a fantastic recipe. Instead of using chicken broth from a can, I used the water from boiling/cooking the boneless-skinless breasts and thighs. It is very tasty and invites you to add a variety of vegetables such as peas or mushrooms, etc. Be creative."
