      This recipe is great! I also omitted the chicken soup and used sour cream instead of mayo. All my guests at brunch loved it. Thanks!

      OMG! This was so yummy and creamy! Used 2 cans cream of chicken, omitted mushrooms, used sour cream (fat free) instead of mayo, and used mozzarella (skim milk) cheese instead of cheddar. We used cooking spray instead of butter. This was so creamy and delicious - I wanted to eat all of it and had to use some self control! haha

      We really enjoyed this made it a bit different because have to watch my salt intake & canned soups are really high, so I subed the chicken soup with a bit of sour cream cuuld have used cream cheese but didn't have any.It will go into my cookbook for another day for sure thanks for posting, oh & it is easy too. tried this again the other night but because comercial soups have alot of salt & other things in them I used a recipe on recipezaar for cream soup mix for replacing soups #57287 it is a keeper for me will always use it instead of cream soups everyone should try it...
