This recipe arrived in my inbox today. I thought it sounded good, so I came to take a look. I wouldn't even call this semi-homemade, as everything is prepared, prepackaged, canned, ready to use. I prefer soups that truly are hearty, and come from fresh ingredients. It's a hard pass for me.

Delicious! But I agree with some other readers here -- a couple of the ingredients, as described, were practically impossible to find. My local grocery store (which is a massive, multi-story complex) did not have (and had never heard of) "cream of chicken and mushroom soup." So I used one can of each "cream of chicken" and "cream of mushroom" instead. Also, couldn't find "garlic and herb cream cheese." Closest thing I found was "chive and onion," so I used this instead and added garlic, just like another reader in the comments suggested. Once I got past the improvisation required to materialize a couple of these ingredients, the recipe was delicious.

Yum! Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I changed it up a little to use up what I had on hand I substituted about 3 cups of rotisserie chicken I had frozen for the chicken breast strips and used 2 cups milk and 2 cups chicken broth as well as the whole bag of California-blend vegetables and the whole container of the garlic

Excellent! Was a hit at our house! To CHUCK who asked the question on Jan 6, 2019: It does say to "heat through" which I believe simply means to heat until it's hot, I would probably use a medium heat and stir to be sure it doesn't stick. When it's hot, it's done. Also, even better the second day.

Yummy good comfort food!No adjustments needed. Campbell's brand of soup makes a delicious Chicken and Mushroom soup; two flavors combined in one soup. 2 cand of this does the trick!

Hi Chris,Cream of Chicken and Mushroom soup is actually one variety of condensed soup. The recipe calls for 2 cans of that flavor. If you can't find it at your local market substitute one of each.Hope that helps,Susan StetzelRecipe Support SpecialistTaste of Home Magazine

I'd like to try this recipe, but I need some clarification on the ingredients, please. It says 2 cans of cream of chicken and mushroom soups. Does it means 1 can of each or 2 cans of each? Commas do make a difference with ingredient lists.

I love the idea of using the cream cheese spread. Bravo!
