This soup is one of my family’s favorites. My mom created it after having something similar in a restaurant.

Author: 
Recipe type: Soup
Ingredients
  • 3 cups cooked, cubed chicken
  • ½ cup butter, divided
  • ¾ cup flour (see tips below)
  • 2 quarts ½ & ½ (I use fat free)
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 6 potatoes, cooked and diced
  • ⅓ cup onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • ¼ tsp sage
  • 1 tsp chicken bouillon
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a small, pan sauté onion in 2 Tbsp butter.
  2. In a large pan, melt remaining butter over medium heat and stir in flour.
  3. Slowly stir in milk and chicken broth (use a wisk).
  4. Cook until thickened while stirring to prevent scorching on the bottom. Add cooked potatoes, chicken, onions, almonds, chicken bouillon and sage.
  5. Salt and Pepper to taste.
Notes
Tips: This meal is really quick and easy if you use the chicken from a rotisserie chicken and frozen cubed hash browns. You may need more or less flour depending on whether you use regular ½ and ½ or the fat free.
