Chicken Broccoli Cheese Soup

 

I don’t even know what to say about this soup. It’s so good. Perfect combo of a creamy chicken and a broccoli cheddar soup.  Try it. You WON’T be disappointed.

 

1 small diced onion

1 tsp minced garlic

1 stick butter

1 cup flour

8 cups chicken broth

2 cups shredded cooked chicken (or more)

2 bags of frozen broccoli (I use florets)

2 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper (white if you have it)

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

1 cup milk (I used 2% milk)

4 cups sharp cheddar cheese

 

In a large saucepan, saute onion and garlic over medium high heat until opaque.

Lower heat to medium and add butter and flour. Cook until roux is bubbly and starting to brown.

Pour roux into a pot and add chicken broth (stir to prevent lumps)

Add chicken, broccoli, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and cook for about 30 minutes.

Stir in cheese and milk until cheese is fully melted and serve.
