  1. This may be a stupid question, but is the 3 cups of Cream of Chicken Soup the concentrated canned version or the diluted with 1 can of water version?

    1. Mignon, you are correct, this is not a low histamine recipe. Can we ask: where do you see this labeled as low histamine? We hate to cause any confusion. Many thanks!

  2. As a Non-US Member I would love to see if there is a way to include an equivalent to products that are not available outside of the US.

    For example 2 tablespoons Italian Dressing Dry Mix. Italian Dressing Dry Mix is not something that can be purchased in Australia.

    For the Australian version I use this recipe

    The US site also has the recipe which can be found below.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion. I will pass that along to our Menu Builder Team so that they can look into that.

    1. Hi Kim, I believe why the recipe says dry mix is for a concentrated flavor of the spices. You could add regular salad dressing, it may just be a little more watery since you’re adding more liquid. You could try Italian Seasoning as a substitute if you have it in your pantry. Hope this helps! ~ OAMM

  3. Can the cream of chicken soup be substituted with cream of mushroom soup? Also, if you’re freezing this, do you dump all frozen items as is in the slow cooker or do you need to thaw a bit first?

    1. Hi Anisah — you can substitute cream of mushroom for cream of chicken soup. You would want to thaw the contents in your refrigerator for 24-48 hours before cooking in your slow cooker. I hope this helps! ~ OAMM
