I made this last night and my hubby & I loved it! I used 2 cans of broth and brown rice, left out the water, added butter to the olive oil when cooking the veggies (used portobellas and put in extra because I love them)and then deglazed the pan with a little red wine and added that to the pot. I also used half & half and another 2/3 cup of 1% milk plus a little nutmeg at the end. I did add salt & pepper to taste as I was cooking. I almost always add more spices to any recipe I make but I think the recipe as it stands is a great one. I will definatley make this again and again!

The first time I made this chowder I followed the recipe exactly. The second time I made it, I made some changes which I think really improved the final results. I eliminated the water. I didn't see the need for it. I also eliminated the oregano. I think that was my biggest complaint with the recipe as is - for me the taste was overpowering. To add some flavor, I added chicken bullion, white pepper, parsley and onion powder. Lastly, I waited until the final step to add the chicken. Made as is – the chicken cooks too long – the end result is dried out or rubbery chicken. A tip for new cooks: Before transferring the flour/vegetable mix to the rice mixture stir about ¼ to ½ cup of chicken broth into the flour/veg mixture. This helps to eliminate lumps in your final product.

I absolutely love this recipe. I've made it several times and always get rave reviews. It's definitely great comfort food. If I want to thicken it up, I add a can of Cream of Mushroom and it's wonderful. I find it easiest to put a couple chicken breasts in a slow cook all day with salt, pepper, and garlic salt. When I come home, I shred up the chicken (it's like butter by then) and use it for my soup. If I have too much chickent left over, I use it the next for soft chicken tacos or a BBQ chicken sandwich. Thanks so much for sharing!

I made this as is yesterday for the first time. I loved it. It was nice, thick, and hearty. My wife wants me to add green vegetables the next time I make it, but she took the leftovers to work today so she must have loved it too. To anyone I suggest following the recipe for your first batch, then tweek it if you want, but the original recipe is great.

This was delicious- like a chicken stew. Seemed really thin at first but then the rice puffed up and the whole thing thickened. Added some leftover peas- could add anything you like! Might try some different/more seasoning next time. And there will be a next time!

My husband and I thought this was too bland also. I will try one more time with this recipe before tossing. Would add more pepper and a bouillion cube and 3/4 cup of frozen peas with the milk.

I WASN'T EVEN LOOKING FOR THIS, BUT I COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT TO HAVE FOR DINNER AND I MADE THIS IN UNDER AN HOUR. IT WAS FABULOUS!! IT HAS TO BE EASY FOR ME NOT TO MESS IT UP!!! A NEW FAVORITE OF MINE

I actually would give this 4 1/2 stars but since they don't have that option I will go with 4. My husband loved this recipe I made mine a bit larger by adding more broth and rice and since I had a can of evaporated milk on hand that was opened I used that instead of the milk.
