Very good! I have made this as written and have substituted fresh tomatoes for the canned, and I have also substituted homemade chicken stock for the condensed chicken broth and water. Yummy any way you make it. Perfect with a grilled cheese sandwich! Comfort food at its best! Joyce Moynihan, Volunteer Field Editor.
