    WOW my 3 year old and 6 year old loved this even my picky husband with soup ate 3 helpings. I did change a little made my roux first after sauting the onions and garlic together then slowly added the broth. then followed recipe and added frozen peas and corn and little round noodles. Awsome only used half of the ranch dressing but gave a great flavor. thanks will make again.  -  20 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very flavorful. Even worked with "veggie shreds" instead of cheese for those who may be lactose intolerant and are missing the creamy soup recipes.  -  20 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We love this. I left out the potatoes and green beans, added peas and thickened to gravy consistency, used boneless, skinless thighs well trimmed and served over mashed potatoes. It was delicious. I have also tried it without the cheese and think it's even better. Thank you Okie for a wonderful, versatile recipe that doesn't include canned soup.  -  26 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
