With a few adjustments to suit my cooking habits and family's tastes this was easily a five-star recipe. I doubled both the onion and garlic; omited the herb bundle; and added 1 cup of water into the soup, using non-instant rice which I also simply added into the pot THEN simmered for the 25 minutes. Perfect! My husband thought it was the best!



This is a good, easy recipe. I added some heavy cream and little more flour to the broth for a creamier texture. Good stuff!



A perfect soup for a cold day! I omitted the thyme simply because I’m not a fan of it. I chopped 1 TBSP of fresh parsley and added it to the soup; as opposed to making an herb bundle. I had leftover chicken breasts from the night before. I chopped up the chicken and added to the soup and simmered as called for. I also had leftover rice, which I added to the soup once I turned the heat off. The Old Bay Seasoning adds a delightful flavor and browning the flour beforehand makes for a wonderfully creamy soup without the floury taste. The best recipe for cream of chicken soup I’ve yet to find, and sooooo… simple! The recipe states that it serves 12. I halved the recipe and it was only enough for one meal for my husband and me. If you’re using this for a main course, as I did; you may want to increase the amount.
