    What pretty soup, Nikki! And I love the bowl it's in with the cute little feet :) Pinned!

  2. Darlene

    I do believe you nailed this recipe! I am always amazed by your creativeness. Thank you for all the wonderful dinner ideas. I am making this one tonight!

    chicken cordon bleu just isn't something I think of. This soup however, looks like something I will dream about until I make it. It looks and sounds so delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Robyn

    Can you use FF half & half? (wait - let me rephrase)
    SHOULD you use FF half & half or will it ruin it?

    I made this and trust me, it is even better than it looks! My family loved it!

  6. Kelly

    Does this do well if cooked and then transferred to a crock pot?

  7. Sara

    How many servings does this make? Can you recommend a cheese to use instead of swiss? My husband will not eat anything with swiss cheese in it, but this sounds amazing and I really want to make it.

    1. Melissa

      I can't answer your question about servings since I haven't made it yet, but substitutions for swiss could be Emmenthaler, Gruyere, or Jarlsberg.

  8. Karen

    I'm allergic to cream cheese. is there a substitute? Thx.

    1. Melissa

      Sour cream maybe?

    Made this soup yesterday and I have to say it was absolutely amazing. I'm not that big a swiss cheese fan but, wow, this is good! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    1. Crytstal

      Where you able to find grated swiss? I had to buy from the delli and will just grate it, but I didn't want to spend $8 on cheese to get 2 cups, so I got about half a pound and will just hope it's enough once I grate it.

    2. Angie

      kraft has a grated swiss cheese or you can get cheese in blocks in the cheese department of most grocery stores which would be cheaper than $8 at the deli

    Simply delicious

  11. Christopher

    How many servings is this? I want to make this for my friends but I need to know the serving size and how to increase it if needed?

  12. ashley

    does this not require chicken broth

    1. Angie

      chicken stock or boulion cubes is used

    2. Stephanie

      Says one tablespoon of broth. Is that a typo?

  13. Nancy

    I made this soup last night. Superb! I added garlic powder, fresh ground pepper and sea salt. Thank you for sharing!

    Oooops. I hit "post comment" before I was ready. I made this soup last night. Superb! I added garlic powder, fresh ground pepper and sea salt. I didn't want to open a carton of chicken stock, so I used a Tablespoon of French onion soup. I also didn't have any cubed ham, so I used sliced deli ham I had in the fridge. Thanks for sharing!

  15. MJ

    What would you use asome a gluten free chicken base? Hope there is something because this sounds delicious :)
    Thanks!

  16. Alissa

    Can I make this in a crock-pot?

    This soup is AMAZING!!! My family requests it frequently in the Fall/Winter. Making it again right now. Thank you!

  18. Karen

    Can you make this in the crock pot?

  19. Erin

    This sounds delicious! Any ideas on how it could be tweaked to cook in the crockpot?

  20. Kristn

    I am trying to cut back on some fat/calories a little bit. Could I replace most of the half n half and milk with chicken stock (say 3-4 cups), use fat free cream cheese and then finish with, say....a 1/2 cup of cream?

    1. Jennifer

      Did you try with those Substitutes?

    I added a tablespoon of Dijon Mustard when I made this and it was DELICIOUS. great recipe

  22. Sadie

    How many is this supposed to serve? I didn't see where it says. I am thinking of making this for a Soup Swap at a friends house for 9 people and we need a quart each. I'm not sure if I should take the recipe x 3 or 4. Thanks.

    Delicious! We just made this tonight and it was yummy. A comfort food....obviously. Not low-fat, haha :) We added some diced sauteed onions as well as a can of peas at the same time we added the meat, just to give it a little more substance. We also added a handful of shredded cheddar to give it a little sharper flavor and some more color. I do love the flavor of the swiss in there though! We didn't want to take the time to grate swiss, so we just chopped the block into cubes...it still melted fine.

  24. Sara

    Can this be reheated the next day?

    1. Chef in Training

      definitely!

  25. Kathy

    Lots of people have made I can see. Servings??? how much does this make. When I read the recipe doesn't seem like it would be much?? Anyone???

  26. Lisa

    Pretty awesome, next time I will try making it with less fat.
