Delicious! We had this on a cold, blustery day and it was perfect. I used Uncle Ben's herb long grain and wild rice because that's all i had, and I added mushrooms. My husband loved it. I will definitely make this again.

Great recipe! I controlled the sodium by substituting my home-made chicken broth rather than using store bought. Plus I cut the recipe in half for just the two of us. It freezes well and tastes even better when re-warmed.

This soup is my husbands favorite, it is in our monthly rotation. All i changed is i added red pepper flakes and my husband likes extra rice

Really good. The second time I added mushrooms, used half and half instead of evap. milk and adjusted the salt. Loved it.

Found it to be very bland tasting. Had to add a lot of seasonings, chicken bouillon, a can of cream of mushrooms soup, bacon, and mushrooms, and it still wasn't as tasty as other recipes. Would not make again.

It must be very good since I had to look it up a second and third time to make it again!
