    I made some changes, I also added a clove of garlic, chopped celery and helped the flavor along with chicken b. cubes. added a bay leaf and chopped parsley. Excellent. I served it with grated Guyrere cheese and chopped green onion... Definitely excellent. I omitted the potato flakes.  -  08 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I had a perfect potato soup until I added the potato flakes. Yes, they thickened the soup, but the resulting texture was horrible.  -  02 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We are real "soup people" and this recipe will definately grace the table again! I added some silced button mushrooms instead of the corn, and also about 1/2 cup of grated parmesan to give it a little extra zing. The whole family really enjoyed it. Thank You!  -  23 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
