Thanks for the recipe! It was so good and pretty easy to make. I've now pinned the recipe, so I can reference it again. So don't delete this post! LOL.

After making, I went back to the store to buy another can of Cream of Mushroom soup (always like to have one on hand) and was so bummed to see MSG in the ingredients! Do you know of any brands of Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken that omit the MSG?
