This is a great cold weather recipe. My friend and roomate loved it. It was easy to prepare. I didn't have the "herbed" cream soup so I used plain cream soup and added a few spices of my own to make up for the flavor and it was still great. I served with saltines and a green salad. I can't wait to try again with the proper herbed soup and see how close I came the first time with my own spices. I might also try sometime with ground beef and serve with cornbread. Shucks.....wish I had some left for lunch today! Thanks for posting.

Beautiful combination of flavors that had me feeling so cozy and warm. I used roasted chicken thighs and homemade chicken stock. Perfectly seasoned. Enjoyed with a big chunk of warm, crusty bread. Thanks for sharing this special recipe.

This is some tasty stuff! I sauteed my onion in the butter before adding to the crockpot. I also added some celery flakes and diced pimento for color. I did add more than a dash of basil, and the optional rosemary. I used seasoned salt and pepper instead of the regular. I decided at the last minute to add a shredded medium potato to naturally thicken the mixture a bit. Scrumptious! This is total comfort food! And it is so quick to throw together!

yum! i had planned on making corn chowder, adding chicken when i saw this recipe which is similar. i doubled the recipe using 2 chicken breasts that i browned with chalula dry seasoning then cut up into small bites and tossed into the soup. since i was planning on making corn chowder i figured i would also add 2 cans of potato soup and a can of evaporated milk that were supposed to go into the chowder originally. this turned out sooo good and easy. i simmered on the stove for a few hours instead of using the crock pot and served with french bread. thank you for this recipe, we will eat it again for sure. oh and also i did use a lot of pepper to give it some kick.

Loved to read your memories of this soup and we loved eating it! While I don't predict making this over an open fire anytime soon, I do predict we'll make it many times and enjoy it with many friends. DH thought it would be great over rice. I served it with Marie Callendar Style Cornbread Marie Callender's Style Cornbread. Thank you.

This is a great recipe! I made it easier by not cooking the chicken ahead of time. I just threw everything in slow cooker at once. I also added more rosemary, salt and pepper. I cooked it for 8 hours. About an hour prior to it being fully done I added fresh mushrooms and a bag of frozen peas. Yummers!! I served it with rosemary crackers. My husband inhaled it.

I should have read the reviews for this before I made it - I was expecting a stew because of the name, not a very brothy soup (which is what it is). I thickened with cornstarch at the end, so not a big deal, but I still think the name is misleading. On top of that, I wasn't terribly fond of this. I followed the recipe to the letter but it just tasted like soupy corn to me, which isn't what I was going for. I doubt I will make it again, so sorry.

Very good. I did have to add salt (and pepper) for more flavor. Used 2 bay leaves and a little bit of basil, but no rosemary. I will probably add more than just "a pinch" of basil next time.
