  1. do you think I could add Chicken to this? my husband would like a little more “meat” with his dinner. would you suggest i cook the chicken the soup?, poach and add later? I’m not a great cook, so any help in getting right would be awesome! thanks!!

    1. Hi Fran, yes, of course you could add chicken. If you use thigh or leg meat, you can add it straight in with everything else. If you are using breast meat, I would suggest you add it toward the end of the cook time as it will go quite chewy and ‘dry’ out. If using breast meat, cut into small bite size pieces and add around 30 minutes before the end. Give it a good stir, and check at the end the chicken is cooked through. It should be, but always check! You could also season the chicken before adding, with salt and pepper and a sprinkle of a spice or herb, say cajun spice or some dry basil etc, mix it into the chicken then add as I just mentioned. I wouldn’t worry about pre cooking the chicken, just add as suggested. It will be delicious!

      1. thanks as always! I love your site, FB posts and just your general all around wonderful attitude. please keep doing what ya do! <3

  2. Oh thank you – now I understand so what you are actually doing is using Half & Half instead of milk with the soup as the can suggests milk and not Half & Half – is that correct ???

  3. Can you just use cream corn and is it 1 can of cream of celery soup plus 1 can of Half & Half or do you substitute the Half & Half for the soup?

    1. Hi Margaret, Peggys says you can use canned creamed corn and the celery soup when you add the soup instead of milk like the directions on can say use half and half because it makes it creamier
