I've had this soup for ages and we love it. I have had to add to the original because my family has grown! :) and I've increased the vegetables to make it a little healthier. This soup is made delicious by it's secret ingredient!
Cheddar Chicken Soup
2 cups diced potatoes
2 cups diced carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 cups chicken broth
Dice your potatoes... and your celery & onions... and your carrots, using the handy-dandy Pampered Chef Food chopper... one of my favorite Kitchen tools. Mine is starting to crack and I am very sad!!
Combine first 5 ingredients and bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes until vegetables are tender. Add 1 cup water w/ bouillon cube if you need more broth.
Dice your 3 cups cooked chicken (with Pampered Chef food chopper, as well)
Add SECRET INGREDIENT: 1 Tbsp steak sauce (I highly recommend A1)
Then add 1 1/2 cups milk. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium.
Stir 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper together till smooth.
Gradually stir into soup until boiling and slightly thickened.
Add 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese. Heat and stir on medium low until melted. Do not boil.
Serve and enjoy!!
It even passes the test of my most picky 4 YO!!
