Loved this soup! Found there was no need to cook broccoli seperately, just put the pieces in with the liquids after making the roux. Or, you could also toss it in with the pasta. Either way, it's a delicous meal soup and now one of our favorites.

When I ran across this recipe, I thought it sounded like something my family would love. Being on a "lower fat" diet, there was no way I could make it as written though. I was really pleased with how well the recipe modified to meet my dietary needs. It was still rich and delicious, and everyone loved it. Here is my lightened up version: Light Chicken Broccoli Alfredo Soup (Lower Fat) Served with Italian Herb & Parmesan Bread (Bread Machine - Abm)

I really liked this soup. I make soup once a week and this was a nice change of pace. My liquid portion turned out really thick and I had to add a bit more chicken broth to thin it out. I also used the steam in the bag broccoli and it worked great.

This was great! I used fat free half and half without any issues. Definitely a "splurge" but worth it!

Wow! I am thoroughly impressed! I followed the recipe to the letter and used another reviewer's suggestion to add a little worchestershire sauce to the bowls of soup. That's all I can say, "WOW." Love it, super cheap to make! $12 and it made 4 meals for 3 adults. Served it as-is; thinned it out with broth for re-heat over biscuits; over spaghetti noodles and the last was polished off as a midnight snack. Thanks for a new staple!

This soup is very filling and makes great leftovers. I lightened it up a bit by substituting 1 pint of half-and-half for the quart and just adding some extra broth. Also, I added a pinch of cayenne pepper to give it a bit more of a kick. Topped off with more grated parmesan, this soup turned out great! This is definitely a crowd pleaser and will disappear in a flash.

I made a quick version of this by using dried garlic powder and onion powder. Leftover broccoli and left over chicken fit right in. It turned out wonderful. Easy, good, and comfort food. Will make it again.

those who informed recipe was bland and timing error is specifically related to self error. seasoning, though listed, is to the discretion of the maker as is the timing. I, for one, think this is a wonderful STOUP recipe, much like the one i have made for a long time. Mine is thick and robust because i season to my taste. dinner on a spoon and very well liked by my family.

This was ok but definitely not close to a 5 star recipe. This recipe lost a star because flavour was fairly bland and not appealing to any member of my family. The other star was lost because of the huge inaccuracy of the prep time. Prep for this recipe takes much longer than 5 minutes.
