    This is a terrible recipe. To start with... this is supposed to be a recipe for 'vegetable soup'... so why all the chicken?! And why are you putting a tin of (chicken) soup in to a recipe for soup? Why not just buy a tin of vegetable soup and be done with it? Quite frankly one of the worst looking recipes I have ever seen.  -  24 Feb 2013


    I really liked this recipe. It reminds me of the soup they serve at the Dixie Stampede in Branson, MO. I added extra veggies, especially extra asparagus. My 5 kids thought the recipe okay, it varied from "amazing" (my 14 yr old boy) to "mediocre" (my 7 yr old girl). It kept well in the fridge and I thought it heated up just as good. I only had cream of chicken soup and used butter instead of margarine. I would definitely make this one again. Adding shredded sharp cheddar cheese on top of the bowls is a real flavor booster. Serve this with warm bread!!!  -  10 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Was not impressed it sounded good on paper but didn't turn out that way. Not worth making.  -  23 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
