After tasting a similar soup in a restaurant, I went home and cooked up my own version. It's so soothing on a winter evening served with crusty French bread. For a change of pace, try substituting ham or turkey for the chicken. —Kathleen Rappleye, Mesa, Arizona

"My husband only eats KFC. I made this soup for me because I love chicken. He tried it and I almost didn't get a bowl. Now he asks for it regularly."

"This is one of my favorite soups. I added a cup of frozen peas. I've made it three times now and all three times it came out good."

"This was delicious. I needed something quick and easy and this definitely fit the bill. I also already had all of the ingredients on hand. To make this even easier, I recommend buying a cooked rotisserie chicken and cubing the meat. I also added some garlic powder and a lot more salt. I felt it was too bland as is. But seasoning is always personal taste. This soup is creamy, thick, and filling. It was a hit in our house. Next time I might add some bacon and red pepper flakes."

"Yummy soup! I followed the recipe except I used frozen peas and carrots, almond milk, and neufchatel cheese (basically low fat cream cheese). Will make this again."

"This was just wonderful. I will be making this again for sure but , from now on, I think I will omit the chicken, it's great on it's own."

"I made this almost exactly as directed and this has become a new favorite. Nice and thick, it's a very hearty soup! I used a rotisserie chicken I had on hand, which seemed to add a delicious flavor. I will definitely be making this again!"
