Good recipe with a couple of minor changes. First of all, please don't use bouillon and water. There are wonderful packaged chicken stocks and broths in the grocery store. Secondly, once you've made your roux, start slowly adding your stock. You won't get any lumps this way. Adding the other ingredients first makes no sense to me. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Definitely needed a lot more seasonings. Also added some fresh chopped parsley as a garnish. This was a great place to start Rebecca and a good way to use up some leftover chicken. Soup was hearty and very tasty. Thanks!
The soup was good but next time I will add less liquid and one can of cream of broccoli soup. I used chicken broth instead of cubes and added water to equal the 11 cups od water. I think the cream of broccoli soup and about 3 less cups of water will do it. Thank you for the recipe
I was in the mood for something chickeny, broccolliy, cheesy, and spicy as well - so I made a few changes. First, I sauteed a whole large yellow onion with three cloves of garlic - then added the roux ingredients and cooked it until bubbly and just starting to turn brown. I, then, added 8 cups of chicken broth (slowly at first), four cups of water and the rest of the called-for ingredients (except for the salt) - plus some baby carrots for sweetness, and some pre-cooked bacon for smokiness. Then, I added a half teaspoon of cayenne, a few pinches of nutmeg and about 15 shakes of mexican hot sauce. At the 45 minute mark, I removed about a litre of the soup (for use later) - then added the creme and cheddar, as well as about 1/2 cup parmesan. Wonderful!!!
Thanks for the recipe! I just made it for a Teachers' Luncheon at school, and everyone raved about it and asked for the recipe. The addition of the chicken was such a nice change, and all agreed that it was a meal all by itself. I did make a few changes, just to make it easier on myself. I picked up an already roasted chicken from the grocery store and just cut up the breast into bite-sized pieces, and I used 2 bags of frozen broccoli florets, instead of the fresh. Obviously, I didn't need to simmer the soup nearly as long. I also added some sauteed onion and garlic, a bit of cayenne pepper, and about 8 oz. of velveeta cheese. It turned out beautifully!
Thanks again for the recipe. It's going in the "keeper" pile for certain!
My husband almost had tears in his eyes when he took his first bite. He absolutely loved this recipe. I didn't follow the recipe all the way either. Instead of adding the flour mixture last, I added all the rest of the ingredients into the flour mixture. I also didn't let the soup simmer for 45 minutes. But it was still amazing. I made the Italian Bread Bowls from this website and this meal was a complete success. If I could, I would give this recipe 10 stars.
This turned out very nice for me. I boiled the chicken first and shredded it first instead of cutting it in chunks, and also used 4 cans of chicken broth instead of the bullion.
When it was time to add the thickening agent, I actually poured out some of the broth into the flour and butter and wisked that together separatly so there were no lumps. Then I added garlic salt and an extra cup of cheese.
MY HUSBAND AND I LOVED THIS SOUP! I USED VELVEETA CHEESE INSTEAD OF CHEDDAR(DID NOT HAVE ANY) AND IT TURNED OUT GREAT! THANKS REBECCA!
My family never eats soup and they hate broccoli. I took a chance and made it thinking that if they didn't like it, I would have lunch for a week. They absolutely loved this soup and even wanted more. Thank You!
