  1. Hi I’m not a cream of mushroom person, so with that being said can I double the cream of chicken or use something else?
    Thank you

  2. Could this dish be split in half and frozen? Way too much for my small family and there is nothing I like more than cooking once and having 2 meals. It does sound delicious.
