    Oh this sounds good! I've got to try it. But I have 2 questions. First, do you use the mushroom soup & the cr of chicken or replace the cr of chicken with the mushroom? Second, would it work to cut the amount of chicken in half (there are only 2 of us)? If so would I also cut the ingred in half as well?

    That amount is about right for 2 people it give you a little for left overs for lunch. I always have to double it for our family. No you can just add the cream of mushroom to the recipe or leave it out. I just add both for flavor. I guess you could just cut the recipe in half if you like. I also chop up my chicken into bite size pieces after its done boiling.
