    Simple, quick, and tasty just the way I like em. I added a little chili powder to my chicken and used 1 1/2 cups of broth. Will be a regular for sure. - 6/16/09

    I made this for the first time over a week ago - it was so simple and delicious - i'm not a fan of mushroom soup so we used celery soup instead - delicious! And it is so simple to make, that now my husband has made it twice since, and loves it! We don't add any cheese on top - doesn't need it! YUM! - 6/11/09

    This was really good and the hubby loved it. I don't like quite as much protein in one meal so I used 1 cup cooked, diced chicken breast. Also, I thought it was just a little dry so I added 1/2 cup more broth and I added 1/4 tsp. cumin. This recipe is a keeper for taste, convenience, and health. - 6/2/09
