This is a quick and easy recipe to make during the cold winter months. I have posted my chicken and wild rice soup which I personally love, but this recipe doesn't take much time to make and it is great for anyone wanting a simple chicken soup recipe!
CREAM OF CHICKEN SOUP
Recipe by Luby Luby Luby
This soup makes a great meal on a cold winter night. Just add a salad and some hot crusty french bread. This also makes a first course for dinner. I like to make this when I have left over baked chicken. If using as a first course or appetizer servings would be for 4. If using as a main dish servings would be for 2
