This recipe is amazing. My children ask for it all the time. I made 2 small changes, 1 I boiled a whole chicken in my favorite spices and used both white and dark meat, 2 I used low sodium chicken broth because it was to salty using the regular broth.

It was just ok. Not a whole lot of flavor. I only used 3C of rice instead of 4C and that seemed to be a lot. The cheddar cheese really didn't melt well- there were rubbery chunks here and there. It probably could use more velveeta(processed cheese food). My 3 and 5 year olds did not like it- I was surprised because my 3yr old LOVES soup. I probably will not make it again.

I made this and 4X'd the recipe. It was a huge hit and I gave some to family. Even my kids loved it! I am on my second time making this soup.

This was good. I halved the recipe and it made about 5 large servings. I made regular white rice in my rice cooker and added it instead of instant (worked fine). And I used some cajun seasoning on my chicken to add a little flavor. Will make again.

Exactly what I was looking for. I messed up and only put 46oz of broth in it, but I only ended up putting one cup of white rice in it and added 8 more ounces of processed cheese (I like my cheese). Thanks!

I used 3 cups of rice and it was plenty. Turned more into a rice dish instead of soup. Easy to make and tasty.
