After reading other reviews I tweaked it a bit. I agree it's not enough liquid. I doubled it using 4 cups chicken broth. I used a can of cream of chicken soup. Omit the onion soup mix all together it's just too salty and oniony. Plus I don't like mixing beef stock/bouillon and chicken stock/bouillon in the same recipe. Added 1tsp of dried thyme leaves one garlic clove minced and one bay leaf. Also used skinless bone-in chicken breasts because that's what I had. The bone-in def adds flavour Tasted great and was perfect comfort food Read More

I made it to-day and found there really wasn't enough liquid so I added some chicken stock and the taste was primarily the onion soup mix - Not crazy about it and won't make again. Read More

Easy recipe. Takes no time to make. Skipped the onion and onion packet. Overwhelms the chicken. Read More

I will make again... I followed the advice of another poster and doubled liquid. I used cream of chicken and low sodium cream of mushroom and for water I added broth from chicken I had canned. I added a bit of sriracha for my guys who love their food with a little kick. Normally I add more seasoning initially but forgot. The fresh celery and onion however were plenty to give that added flavor. And I did use the lipton onion soup. It doesn't overpower the soup as some said as long as there is enough liquid. 2 hours on high it was done I was amazed. My intent was to let it simmer a while. It was perfect then but the real test is when the guys come home;). I will use this again. Oh I added a few leftovers I had on hand - yellow rice 2 small baked potatoes and small amount of squash/zucchini. Not needed for what I consider an already 5 star soup but got carried away and It only enhanced the recipe. I gave 4 rather than the 5 star because the recipe needs the extra liquid and the addition of sriracha to give it a bit of zing Read More

After reading the reviews I searched for the personal recipe version of this knowing that sometimes ingredients and amounts get lost in the translation from the personal to the published recipe. I couldn't find the personal version so I went with doubling the amount of liquid. I used chicken broth in place of the water and added cream of chicken to go with the mushroom soup. The onion soup mix compliments the soup and does not overpower it. I'll definitely make this again. Couple of squirts of Sriracha brings it up to 5 stars. Read More
