Cream Cheese Chicken Soup Recipe

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."

"great soup!! The only thing I changed was I used a bag of frozen soup mix veggies to save time since we had baseball practice that night. My oldest son gobbled it up!!"
