Use 3 -14 1/2 oz or 1- 49 1/2oz can of Swanson Chicken Broth, or make your own chicken broth by boiling bones and skin from a rotisserie chicken. Cut up your favorite vegetables and cook until tender in chicken broth. (The vegetables I like to use are: potatoes, onions, celery, green pepper, carrot.) In another sauce pan, melt ½ cup butter. Add 1/3 cup cornstarch, 3 cups milk, 1 cup cream. (cream optional) Heat until thick. Add milk mixture to vegetables. Add cut up chicken from rotisserie chicken, or canned chicken, or cooked chicken tenders. Add 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp salt, and 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes. You can also add other seasonings such as Mrs. Dash.
My younger kids like the taste of the creamy soups. It is fun to be creative when making homemade soup.
