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!
Outstanding!Of course since it's Paula's i had no doubt:)followed it to the letter, no changes..thanks for posting:)
I love this soup!! I exchanged pasta for the rice, added some cayenne and a little extra salt and pepper. AMAZING and so easy.
