Awesome! It's such a great comfort food. I used Progresso Unsalted Chicken Broth and it cuts the sodium to less than 100 per serving. I did have to let it simmer uncovered for longer than 5 minutes to get it to be thick, but maybe I had the temp too low. Makes great leftovers too! Thanks for posting - 8/30/11
