this was really good. Hubby loved it too. Made minor changes-used frozen peas/carrots instead of just carrots. I shredded the chicken and I used half/half instead of milk and I added a little rosemary. Next time I might add some corn. This soup was very tasty and creamy.

We've made this several times love it! We've added peas, celery and garlic. Even substituted tuna (2 cans of Kirkland albacore) in place of the chicken after the cream cheese. On our list of FAVS!

This is very good and very filling. To make it lower carb I omitted the flour and used heavy whipping cream instead. I had green onion so used that and really liked the flavor.

This was an easy soup to make. We all enjoyed it.

I made this soup almost exactly as directed except I added about 1 cup of frozen peas and used low-fat cream cheese. I also used store-bought rotisserie chicken I had in the freezer. It was delicious! With the potatoes, carrots & peas mixed it, it was very colorful, and it was thick enough to be hearty, but not too thick to enjoy. This seems to be a soup that you can add just about any vegetable you have on hand, and clean out your freezer as well. This will definitely be added to my list of soups to make.

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.
