    I just want to be sure with this recipe, because you list canned cream of mushroom in the ingredients list as well as give the recipe for homemade cream soup. Are you using both soups in the recipe or is one replacing the other?

    Tonight at dinner we literally sat in silence for at least 10 minutes while everyone ate…. it was that good… everyone just wanted to eat! I never once had to say “please eat” to my 6,3 and almost 2 year old! They even asked for more! Huge success on this dinner! I love that I can make it without store bought (high sodium) cream of chicken soup! Even hubby said “You need to add this to the “make again” list!” GREAT RECIPE!
