How to Make CREAMY ITALIAN CHICKEN SOUP

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the cubed potatoes in a medium pot of boiling water. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until tender; drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 Tbsp. butter or olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add cut-up chicken and cook, stirring often, until chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add baby carrots and onion and cook until carrots are tender and onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds.
  4. Pushing other ingredients to the side, melt additional 2 Tbsp. butter or olive oil in pot and add flour, making a paste.
  5. Over medium-high heat, slowly add the chicken broth and half-and-half. Stir entire contents of pot until mixture starts to thicken.
  6. Add potatoes, oregano and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer, uncovered, until heated through. Top with chives and Parmesan and serve with a crusty Italian bread.
