This soup is awesome! I add a cup of uncooked Minute Rice and use a can of cooked Chicken as a quick and easy fix. My family loves this recipe! I have been making it for 15 years! This is my daughter's favorite soup! She is 26 and still requests it if she is feeling the least bit under the weather and it always perks her up! :-)

Very good but I recommend doubling because it disappears first. I use 1 cup of cooked rice and 1 can chicken broth instead of the water and chicken and rice soup. Otherwise, I make as listed and it is delicious!

It was kind of bland I added chicken seasoning. I also added extra rice it really needed it. Every one in my family liked it after I fixed it up.

This was a quick and easy soup. I added a lot more than the required amount of lemon juice and thickened it. After I did this, the flavor was great! I will make this modified version again, but I will add more rice next time.

I made this again with a few modifications. I didn't use the chicken with rice soup. I added chicken broth instead of water. I added a 1/2 cup of instant rice after the rest of the ingredients came to a boil. The rice was cooked and the soup was thick after about 8 minutes.

Based on other comments, I only used one cup of water so that it was thicker. I added lemon juice until it was the flavor was good--about 1 1/2 tablespoons. I thought this soup was simple and delicious! I will definitely make again but might use chicken broth and cooked white rice instead of the condensed soup.

Very good. I did not add so much water though.

I don't understand what ckuncio was trying to communicate and not sure if the rating was appropriate for the recipe and even if it was made and tried. I made this today for the family. I thought it was a bit thin so I added another half a can of cream of chicken and put in 3 tablespoons of lemon juice instead of the 1-2. The family loved it!
