    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,

    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!

    Made it for dinner tonight and it turned out real good... the only thing that I changed was I cooked my chicken breast... I cut it up and sautéed it... and I could not find the garlic and herb cream cheese so I got plain and added garlic powder to it... over all this recipe is a keeper
