I made this a few weeks ago and mine was soupy as well. It was super good though. My son ask me to make it again today, and I'm going to, but could you make it with some kind of steak instead of chicken.

Thanks Kelli

Is there a way to let it cool all day on low while at work instead of adding stuff every so many hours?
