This is a great creamy chicken soup. I really enjoyed it as did my whole family. I think we're having soup at least once a week these days so I was happy to come across this recipe on My Kitchen Cafe. Really really good!
Cheesy Chicken and Vegetable Soup
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
3 cups chicken broth
3 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup milk (could use cream or half and half if you want a richer soup)
4 tablespoons flour
8 oz cream cheese
3 cups cooked and cubed chicken
In a soup pot melt butter. Add onion, celery, and carrots and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and cook another minute or so. Add chicken broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
In a bowl whisk together milk and flour. Add to soup, stirring well. Add chicken. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until soup thickens.
Soften cream cheese in microwave for about 35 seconds. Add softened, nearly melted, cream cheese to the soup and mix it in well. Heat through and season with salt and pepper.
