As written, I really didn't care for this recipe. It lacked flavor. However, once I added one large chicken bullion cube (reduced sodium) and 3 or four pinches of sugar and a pinch of kosher salt, it was almost just like campbells. I also like the canned stuff with water better, so I reduced the liquid a bit and used half water and half milk just like I do with the canned stuff. It was great!!! I would also recommend not adding garlic or onion like some people suggest on other recipes as it messes with the texture. This recipe is a great starting point. From now on, I can buy a $.44 can of paste instead of two $.70 can of soup. This is deffinately a keeper!

I tried this recipe adding half milk, half water, a little salt and a little chicken bullion. It did taste a lot like Campbells but my soup also curdled.

This is a nice starting point, but I found it tastier with TrisaKay's suggestions. For recipes that require the condensed version, I like using 6 oz. tomato paste, 6 oz. water, 1/2 t. salt, 1 t. sugar, and 1/2 t. Better than Bouillon Reduced Sodium Chicken Base (you could substitute bouillon, but you may want to get ride of the salt in the recipe if you do).

Wonderful soup with grilled cheese sanwiches! Very simple and cheap, definitely a keeper! It is a little bit plain for those who like more flavor, but this is a great basic recipe to play with. Thanks!!

I used 1/2 water and 1/2 milk and added 1.2 tsp sugar. Only problem I had was that the milk curdled a little bit, I don't know why that would happen but it tasted great anyway, just like Campbell's!
