We loved this soup and next time will have to double the recipe. I used a red onion, matchstick carrots and Tyson chicken in the pouch. I did add a bit more sharp cheddar and topped with the parsley. Perfect comfort food and will be making it again soon! Thank you Mike for sharing this delicious recipe with us. Made and reviewed for the Football Pool - Week 4.

Daily Inspiration

This was really delicious and just what I needed. I purchased rotisserie chickens in order to make some soups and casseroles and this recipe was perfect. My only change was to omit the celery and I used organic gold potatoes vs. the red ones (didn't have them on hand). This soup made a great lunch today.

Great soup! Don't you love it when you have everything to make dinner and don't need to stop at the store for anything!!! This is this soup and it taste wonderful! I only had one potato and guessed at the amount of chicken I had and also the amount of cheese -- but it came out great! Thanks for sharing this keeper which I know we will be making often.
