    mama smurf's Note:

    Found this in Paula Deen's magazine "Cooking with Paula Deen". It is a little different from some I have seen and quite tasty. She uses heavy cream (of course) but I have made it with the heavy cream and also with evaporated milk which isn't as heavy. I changed the recipe to use fresh vegetables when possible and some garlic.

      Yum!!! Great soup and great way to use pre-cooked ingredients. I used leftover chicken and rice from a previous meal. Really liked the addition of tarragon! I skipped the peas (don't like them in soup) and almonds. I also used fat-free half-and-half instead of heavy cream, and that worked great. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.

      This soup is so good! I used some left over dark meat that I got on sale and had frozen. For just two people it makes a lot but I froze half for future dinners and ate the remainder for lunches. Paula Deen always gets it right!
