This cream of chicken soup is the ultimate comfort food on those cold, winter days.
This Cream of Chicken Soup recipe is a keeper. It is the comfort food of comfort foods. It is warm and creamy and yummy all in a bowl.
At my house, my family all cheers when this soup is put on the table. Especially my husband. Have I mentioned my husband is a picky eater? When I married him, there was certain foods he would eat and that was all. Don’t try new recipes because he wouldn’t like them. I can understand, I suppose, because my cooking skills lacked back then. Ahem. (I was 19 when we got married. I had never really cooked before except tacos and spaghetti. One of the reasons why I want my children to learn how to cook!) Thankfully, over the years he has learned to like more foods and I have learned to find recipes he would enjoy.
When we first had this soup, we were at a church function. It was a small group setting and I had suggested to the hubby he should eat whatever they had no matter what it was. He was rather nervous on what would be served. He was hesitant, but tried it. He raved and raved about it so I got the recipe. So, so good!
I have doubled this recipe and tripled this recipe for large group gatherings. It works well. As a busy mom, this Cream of Chicken Soup is one of my go-to meals. You know, for those days you don’t have anything planned because your schedule changed unexpectedly. I almost always have already cooked chicken in the freezer. When I do, this meal takes a few minutes to put in the crockpot and off I go. To probably clean sticky fingerprints off of the windows. Still, it’s the point. 😉
