WOW my 3 year old and 6 year old loved this even my picky husband with soup ate 3 helpings. I did change a little made my roux first after sauting the onions and garlic together then slowly added the broth. then followed recipe and added frozen peas and corn and little round noodles. Awsome only used half of the ranch dressing but gave a great flavor. thanks will make again.

Very flavorful. Even worked with "veggie shreds" instead of cheese for those who may be lactose intolerant and are missing the creamy soup recipes.

We love this. I left out the potatoes and green beans, added peas and thickened to gravy consistency, used boneless, skinless thighs well trimmed and served over mashed potatoes. It was delicious. I have also tried it without the cheese and think it's even better. Thank you Okie for a wonderful, versatile recipe that doesn't include canned soup.

Great soup. Halved recipe & made my own broth by boiling chicken breasts with a bullion cube, some parsley flakes and dash of garlic powder. I made the roux in the pan with the sauteed veggies and like other reviewers was not satisfied with the thickness of the soup, so I added a few tsp of cornstarch. I also used about half of the cheese and ranch mix as was recommended and it had great flavor. Will def. be making again. :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS soup. Just so everyone knows I submitted this recipe some years ago. I submitted the recipe stating thicken to your own taste and/or preference using roux and described how to make roux. I make it as a chowder and pretty thick, however some people don't like it as thick as I do. Thus the choice in the recipe. It has irritated me forever that many of the comments say the soup is not thick enough as written. This is because it is not written verbatim as I wrote it, you can make it as thick or thin as you want to. The flavors are what the recipe is about, as with all soups. You can make any soup into a chowder by thickening it with roux. When I make a roux I keep on thickening whatever I have made until it as thick as I like it. I love this soup/chowder and make it every winter!

I made this recipe tonight and it turned out great. Based on the other reviews on the thickness I decided to change it up just a little. I added a little extra flour to the base as well as a little milk to thicken it up. It turned out perfect and was fairly easy to make. I will definately make this recipe again.

Impressively good soup. I followed the directions exactly except I thickened with 1 tbs. cornstarch instead of the roux. I will make this again for sure.

Delicious soup with great flavor. I would definately call it a "soup" rather than a "chowder" because it is a thin soup. I added some cornstarch to thicken it.
