Creamy Chicken Soup
I’m such a fan of this soup. It’s creamy and rich and so nourishing. It comes together in only a very short time yet is impressive enough to serve as a dinner party starter. By including generous amounts of shredded poached chicken, this soup is such a satisfying meal and is perfect on a chilly day. Try placing it in a thermos for a hot lunch.
I like to garnish mine with crispy fried prosciutto, but that isn’t a necessity. It’s delicious all on its own!
It might be that it’s the winter season where I live or just the fact that I love soups, whatever it is, you’re going to want to make this deliciousness! Top with crispy bacon or prosciutto and you’ll be licking the bowl. Even kids will love this creamy bowl!
