Cheesy Chicken Vegetable Soup

Happy Memorial Day, everyone! I hope you’re able to enjoy the holiday and remember those who have served our country.

It’s been rainy and cool here lately, and that sort of weather has given me a hankering for some comforting soup. This cheesy chicken vegetable soup sure hits the spot! It has all the necessary components: yummy cheese, crunchy vegetables, and seasoned chicken.

Cheesy Chicken Vegetable Soup - Comfort in a bowl!

Start the soup by cooking 2 cups of chicken with 1/4 c. chopped onion and 1/4 tsp. minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

Remove that from the pan, and melt 1/4 c. butter in the same pan. Add in 1/2 c. flour to make a roux; stir until mixture starts to brown.

Add in 4 c. chicken broth, and start to bring mixture to a slow boil.

Also, add in about 3 cups frozen mixed vegetables, and the chicken from before. Let mixture simmer for about 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, stir in 1/2 c. milk and 2 cups shredded cheese. (I find that it works best to use freshly grated, but the other works, too!)
