On Black Friday of each year, we have our "extended" family Christmas to beat the rush. We serve Italian dishes since, by then, we've had our fill of Turkey and Dressing. Last year I wanted to fix something light since everyone else does either lasagna or pizza so I made this recipe. It was a hit! There were no leftovers whatsoever. And now when the family gets together, this is what they ask me to make. Fixed my chicken and carrots this morning and going home this afternoon to finish it up and serve it for supper. What an awesome recipe! Thanks so much for sharing.

I do enjoy your shows so very much, wish I could come to your place of business, maybe some day I will be able too. Take care dear friend and again have a bless day. A fan from Texas

I love most of the dishs I have gotten from you. But I have started to use Racheal Ray cookware because your products are not backed by you for some reason even with your word.

Paula, I love to eat your recipes but I will not do to the fact you don't post the calories, fat and other important information on your food. I have to be honest that I live in the Midwest and I know the south is know for there increased butter and sugar usage in your foods. So until I see food facts I can't risk my waste line over your inceased usage of butter and sugar.

We just tried this recipe tonight for the first time. I followed the recipe for the most part, this is what I done different. I cooked my chicken in the olive oil and rinsed in in hot water to get all of it I could off. Then I added the olive oil the recipe called for to the soup along with a little extra carrots (which I love when they are cooked or raw with ranch)& some extra chicken. It was perfect! My whole family, including a picky 3 year old and a non-veggie eating 7 year old! I grated some fresh parmesan over everybodys bowl & served it with bread and celery and ranch! IT WAS GREAT!

paula's recipe sounds good. i don't want tomato - maybe mushroom soup and pasta. no cheese either.

My husband is recovering from chemotherapy and needs organic vegetables - which I used along with some organic cabbage I steamed on the side and threw in at the end. Also, I used plain salt-free diced tomatoes and added my own garlic, basil and oragano to taste. It was very healthy and healing for him. Thank you, Paula.

i read reviews come on here and complain about the recipes this recipes is too bland or that is to dry it doesn't taste that good. everyone,s taste is different. has any of these people ever heard of tweaking the recipe to their liking. Paula Deen is a good cook cause she cooks to her liking. she tweaks this seasoning and tweaks the cooking time time till she is satisfied with how it taste. so you people who come on here to complain try tweaking before you write
