Excellent recipe. I added peas and corn also and it was delicious. We love soup no matter what time of year. I doubled this recipe and put the extra in the freezer for future meals.

Very good flavor! You may want to add some extra broth or water because it is quite thick.

Turned out to be one of my family's favorites. Thank you for that! Since my wife is not fond of boiled chicken, I fry the chicken with some salt, pepper and garlic. I als add corn, thyme, a bit of rosemary and a lot of parsley. And 1 1/2 cup of shredded cheese is enough, as far as I'm concerned.

When I saw this I knew it would be a wonderful soup. Reviewers varied as to whether they like the flavor as is or with a bit more flavor so I added 1/2 t. garlic powder, 1/4 t. crushed rosemary, and 1/4 t. marjoram. And, I cooked the vegetables and broth in the crockpot for two hours; then proceeded with the sauce and cheese. Loved it! The second time I made it without the chicken, adding another potato

I make a chicken corn chowder that is very similar to this recipe. I add frozen corn ,a can of cream corn and I shred the chicken. Also add some dried basil. It's delicious.

I love recipes where I don't have to put any ingredients on my shopping list; they become "go to" recipes when you need to put together a quick, hearty meal. This soup is such a nice change from chicken noodle or chicken rice soup. I did add one more cup of broth than the recipe called for; I used canned broth and would have had about 1 cup left over from the 2 cans I opened so I just added the extra and it tasted great. Very flavorful and definitely fits my guidelines for comfort food. I am so glad there were leftovers for tomorrow night! Salad, French bread or hearty sandwich and soup: perfect!
