This was the first recipe that I did not like from The Pioneer Woman. I was skeptical about using only milk and half and half as a soup base, and I was right. The whole thing was way too heavy for my taste. I felt like I should have used chicken broth to help make it more of a soup as oppose to a sauce. My husband actually enjoyed the meal, but my"
