"While I prefer my normal chicken soup recipe with a clear broth better, this was very good for variety, and my adult children liked this one better. My son took some to work and shared with his co worker who also loved it and asked for the recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe directed. Simple to make."

"Good recipe but using canned cream soup makes it extremely high in sodium."

"A bowl of love! This is a great soup to make for someone who is recovering from illness. It is warm and comforting. For home, we kick the flavor up with added seasons of garlic and / or sourthwestern spices to give it a kick. Also, we add a bag of frozen carrots to the pot also. Very nice comforting dish. easy to make!"

"I add only two things that I believe made a great difference and that was a can of 12.5 oz. kirkland breasts and I used a rice measuring 1/2 cup each of brown and white

rice. My wife loves it and so do I !!Thank You for a wonderful tasting soup."

"I feel like the odd one out. I followed the recipe to a "T" except that I added only 5 cups of water (it seemed like a lot of water). I was so disappointed in this soup. It was so bland, and tasted like cream of chicken soup with rice in it. I couldn't bare to throw away the whole pot, so this morning I salvaged it by adding some garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Not bad. So it gets three stars, but I won't be making it again."

"This came out so much better than I'd expected! I substituted two cups of chicken broth for two of the cups of waters and only used one can of condensed chicken soup. It was absolutely delicious. With a splash of cayenne pepper this is a perfect meal for a cold. It tasted wonderful even before I added the soup so I think I will try it without next time to see which I like better.

One thing I did notice was that it probably could have benefited from another five minutes of simmering."

"I've been making this one for several years since I found it in the Jan/Feb 2002 magazine. My daughter who was 4 years old at that time, loved it so much that she came to describe how much she love me by her love for the soup. She would often say, "I love you more than chicken rice soup!" It's hard to top a compliment like that."
