"This is the recipe my grandmother used when she was growing up during the great depression. 70 years later, it's still a delicious, satisfying form of comfort food.

Since so many people said it was watery, I used one can of chicken broth and one can of cream of chicken soup instead of two cans of chicken broth. That worked fine.

Really delicious basic recipe. I used a bag of frozen corn and added chicken, carrots, mushrooms and some minced garlic. I also used skimmed milk and then added powdered coffee creamer to make...
