Creamy Chicken Soup

This Creamy Chicken Soup has a lightly creamy broth and is filled with flavorful vegetables. It is light enough in warm weather and paired with a sandwich it is filling in cool months.

One of my favorite meals to eat is soup. I love the blending of the flavors and the soothing broth. This creamy chicken soup has a wonderful tasting broth that is creamy, but not too thick and filling. We love the vegetables and find the flavors to compliment each other very nicely.

2. Add remaining tablespoon of butter and the raw bite size pieces of chicken. These are small and will cook quickly as you stir them. Mine were done in about 3 minutes.
3. Stir in your cream of chicken soup and the chicken broth until smooth. Slowly add the milk, stirring until well blended. Cook for 3 minutes.
4. Add broccoli to the soup. It takes about 8-10 minutes to cook whether fresh or frozen.
5. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
6. Serve and enjoy!

This is a soup that we eat all year long. When I tell my husband I'm thinking of making soup, this is his favorite to suggest. It is a nice light meal on it's own during spring and summer and pairs nicely with a sandwich during the cooler fall and winter months.

What is your favorite soup to eat?

  2. This sounds really good! I love eating soup in the winter. I would be happy to eat soup and salad for dinner every night, if I could just get the rest of the family on board.

    1. I love all kinds of soups and would eat them year round too. My husband thinks soup during the summer is silly, but I figure it's no different than eating a casserole that was cooked at 350 degrees. =)
