    Made this after Christmas boiling the carcasses from the turkeys from Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners I had frozen for the broth. Hubby said it was the best soup he's ever had. Followed the exact recipe, no changes made except for the broth I made from carcasses. I can't remember if I had to top of with chicken broth or not, it's been almost a year. It freezes great! I cook all my OTR truck driver husband's meals and he can't wait until I make this again since fall is around the corner. Excellent add to the cold weather meals in the freezer.

    I made this after Thanksgiving ... only had heavy cream in the kitchen. Oh my, did that turn out great. Definitely making that again. Will also try using store bought rotisserie chicken as well.

    This was soooo good and easy to make. I had cooked wild rice in the freezer and all I did differently was to cut the recipe in half, use chicken (which I had already cooked), shredded carrots (which I already had) and added about 2 tbls. poblano pepper chopped small and 1-2 minced garlic cloves and sauteed them with the onion mixture. I did use 2% milk because I found out I was out of cream. Going into my Favorites of 2011. Thank you for a quick and easy recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2011.

    Delicious and easy. Much more easy than the recipe I used to use. I added just a smidge more seasonings, but really this is a great recipe and thank you:)

    I've made a similar soup in the past, but this is easier! I used 1 Tb olive oil and 2 Tb butter instead of the half cup of butter as written. Both DH and I loved it. Made for fall PAC.
