Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

Sunday, September 28, 2014
This is a rich Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup is delicious and easy to make.

The soup is made quickly with chicken breast, and vegetables, and makes a tasty broth with spices, and some half and half for that perfect creaminess.

The roux is made with simple pantry ingredients to get this thickened with butter, olive oil, and flour.

Any pasta can be used in place of noodles but they certainly are a nice addition in this soup.
