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

"I substituted ham for the chicken and I added about a cup of tiny frozen peas and about 1/4 cup sour cream and let it simmer for about 20 minutes before serving. I had also added a couple stalks of minced celery a couple teaspoons of minced garlic while I was cooking down the onions."

"This recipe was a HOMERUN!! My very picky husband could not stop raving about it. It tastes almost like chicken pot pie in a soup. I did make a couple of changes - I added 2 extra cups broth, 1 extra cup of milk, a couple tablespoons sour cream to the milk/flour mixture, and I stirred it longer to create a thicker soup. At the end we added about a cup of canned peas. This will be a new family favorite!!"

"I love this recipe and have made it several times and still get raving reviews. I cook it in my slow cooker with the exception of the flour, milk, and cream cheese for 4 hours on high, then I add the fluoro, milk and cream cheeses until thickened (10-15 minutes). I also like to add one stick of celery (chopped), 2-3 fresh large mushrooms (chopped), and some ground garlic. I love to serve this in a bread bowl."
